E|---------------------------------------| This part is repeated 3 or 4 times extremely fast, and then
B|---------------------------------------| gradually slows to a real slow tempo, then speeds back up.
G|o-9-10-9-8-9-10-9-8-9-10-9-8-9-10-9-8-o| Then it slows back down again, and this time add a pinch
D|o-------------------------------------o| harmonics to every note. End on the E on the ninth fret
A|---------------------------------------| with a lot of vibrato. Then:
E|---------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-x-----------8^(9)^8^(9)^8^(9)^8^(9)^8^(9)^8^(9)^8^(9)~~~-x-------|

E|-----0~------------------------------------------------------0~-|
Key
|================================|
|() pinch harmonic |
|^() bend to note in parenthesis |
|()^ bend down to note after ^ |
|================================|
Well, this is about it. It's actually a really simple song, and isn't that difficult to memorize.
I suggest just memorizing one pattern at a time (i.e. the first part that's primarily on the D string,)
getting that up to speed (or as close as possible) and then the rest should flow pretty naturally.
Once you've got it down to a good speed, this song also serves as an awesome warm up and speed exercise.
This isn't an exact tablature of the Flight of The BumbleBee, because Petrucci performs this live and
i'm sure he changes it up every once in a while, but you get the idea. Enjoy! This one's a mother!
