-------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

guitar solo, very fuzzed out

to play this solo completely correct, you're going to have to tranpose up

an octave, and then slap some of that Octaver on there, but I thought it

would just be easier if I transcribed it in the lower octave... go buy that

effect, or an Octave Fuzz....

 

-------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------

--7b8-7(8)b7-5--4h5p4-------5h7----7b8-7-5-7--7b8-7--5p4-----

okay, after the solo is over, play these chords 4x:

--2--2-2--2-2-2---2-2---

--2--2-2--2-2-2---2-2---

--5--5-3--3-3-3p2-2-2---

------------------------

 

then play this progression back into the main fuzzed riff from before:

(pm = palm mute)

--3-3---3-3----3-----3----3-----3--

--2-2---2-2----2p0---0----0-----0--

now this part is a clean guitar, with a bass doubling riff:

play this 5x:

 

-----------------------------------------------------------0--------

-------------------------------------------------------3-----3------

-----------------------------------------------------0---0-----0----

--7--7--7--7--/11--11--11--11--11-11\5--5--5--5--5\4-------------4--

---0--0--0--0----0---0---0---0--------0--0--0--0--------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------

 

then play this twice into the outro:

 

--------------------------5----------5--

--------------------------5------5-5-5--

--------------------------7--9p7-7-7-7--

-------------------4-5--5-5--5---5-5-5--

Lyrics:

 

Faith lies in the ways of sin

Chased the charmed but I don't want them anymore

And in their eyes I was alive -- a fool's disguise

Take me away from here

 

Shame my tongue fat with promise all along

When I woke up from that sleep

I was happier than I'd ever been

 

When you decide that your life is a prize

Renew, revive, it's all right honey, it's all right, yeah

 

Happines will make you wonder

Will I feel ok

It scared the disenchanted

Far away

 

Yeah, I want something new

But what am I supposed to do

I-I, I love you

Yeah, I-I love you

It's true

 

Life's a bummer, when you're a hummer

Life's a drag

 

Ask yourself a question, anyone but me, I ain't free

Ask yourself a question, anyone but me, I ain't free

Do you feel

Love is real?
