Song : Where?

Band : Nickelback

Album : Curb (1996)

Tuning : Dropped-D (D A D G B E)

Tab By : Mike Eheler (meheler@canada.com) on Sept. 23/2002

Notes : It appears that there's no tabs out there on the net for this song.

Thanks to Michael Feeney for pointing this out to me. Anyhoo the intro

is played with a bit of a phaser kinda effect thing. You'll know it

when you hear it. Just the part where an open d chord is being struck

randomly. The rest of the song is straight ahead. The song has two

guitar parts that for most of the song play the same part, but at

times you can hear the 2nd guitar add a little flavour here and there.

I've just tabbed the main line for a single guitar.

 

Any corrections, please feel free to email me.

 

INTRO

For the intro part just kind of hold an open D chord (0 0 0 2 3 -) and strike

some strings randomly in/around the middle of the guitar (meaning don't usually

hit the low D string or the high B/E strings, unless you want to..)

 

x = dead/muted note

h = hammer on

/ = slide up

\ = slide down

br = bend and release

 

RIFF A (- = 1/4 beat)

End on a D5 (0 0 0 - - -)

Bass plays D-F-C-A progression under "I wa-uhs wrong..."

 

You can play RIFF Ca or RIFF Cb below. RIFF Ca is just a standard chord

progression, which I believe is played by guitar 1. RIFF Cb is a little more

difficult, but attempts to combine the sounds of both guitars into one part.

Play RIFF A twice

Then solo over RIFF Ca/Cb (In the recording, the background is at a much

lower volume, and there's more texture to it. Just improvise and have fun

over that chord structure).
