The Devil Knows My Name cover.

"Black Widow of La Porte" is a instrumental Speed Metal song by John 5, featuring Jim Root of Slipknot of his solo album The Devil Knows My Name. The song appears in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock as a unlockable song, unlocked by beating the final encore (Sudden Death by Megadeth) in Quest Mode. The song is considered one of the hardest songs on guitar, due to its numerous and blistering guitar solos, as well as it's length making it quite a endurance test. Beating the song on Expert guitar rewards the player with the "Hand Mutilator" achievement.

The problem with this song is there is no one 'hard' section, though the first half is significantly harder than the second. If you can pass your way through the first solos, you should have little trouble. There are two sections, however, seemingly intent to break your hands; Web Spinning and Spider Crawl.

Web Spinning is made up of high speed turns about G-R-G, R-Y-R, R-Y-O, and G-Y-O. They last for one bar each, then half a bar each, then one turn each, making it incredibly complex and snaking around the fret.

Spider Crawl is an extremely difficult section of tap notes in the coda of the song; if you can pass it you have effectively done the song. it is best to save Star Power for this, there is no describable pattern, and it will take a while to combo. It is easier to use one hand, then a second for the quick R-Y-R-B section- though this is far easier said than done.
