Dysrhythmia Tab - Kevin Hufnagel's Style?

If there is already a thread for this, my apologies and feel free to redirect me to it.

Is there any sort of interview or analyzation of Hufnagel's guitar style? I've begun to learn "And Just Go" by ear, but it's been mostly the lead melodies and not his funky chords. I really am finding it a bitch to figure them out. I have a few ideas as to what notes might be in them, but I have yet to hit the nail on it's head.

It's been really fun figuring this song out, but these chords are getting to me. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks.

hi, kevin here.. "and just go" is one of the few dysrhythmia songs in standard "A-440" tuning. which part of the song are you having trouble with? i don't have any of my guitar parts written or tabed out.. but this probably wouldn't be a bad idea as i tend to forget things in our older songs as we keep writing and playing new ones...

Haha, Thanks Kevin.
I don't know if you'd want me to post it, but have the song tabbed out (quite sporadical).

Some areas of confusion would be anywhere you seem to be playing more than one note at a time:
Edit- My friend informed me that the beginning is the bass, and you don't come in until after (your guitar swells).
The very first chord, I think is close to one of the following (a D chord?),
Code:
E|---------
B|---------
G|-7--7--7-
D|-0--0--0-
A|-9--5----
E|-7--7--7-
0:29 - The intro's volume swells
1:25 - Sounds like you keep some notes throughout the chord progression. possibly E? But it's that whole riff there where you guys get heavier and add that BG hiss
Edit: Playing around with the chords today, I think it's something more along the lines of,
Code:
|-0-------|-0--------|
|-0-------|-5--------|
|-4-------|-4--------|
|-2-------|-2--------|
|---------|----------|
|---------|----------|
Which keeps similar structure through out the riff.
Instead of,
Code:
|-0-------|-0--------|
|-3-------|-5--------|
|-4-------|-4--------|
|---------|----------|
|-2-------|-2--------|
|-0-------|-0--------|
3:36 - I believe it's octaves, very fast here, almost trem picked, I'd guess.

I've found my ear probably needs a few more years to catch up to even triad inversions (My Musicianship class has all of a sudden become a pain with hearing triad inversions)

And I think that's it (I'm a little surprised it isn't more, could have sworn I didn't figure out that much).

Forgetting? I thought that was called improv and keeping the songs "new" by changing things around. Haha. Thanks for responding,

"Appeared at First" is a song we'll be re-learning for the upcoming tour. so maybe I'll have time to tab some of it out for you soon since I need to review it as well!
