AFI - MEDICATE
Tuning half step down

Intro - For the first 8 or so seconds the intro is played in reverse. Then: (Might be
guitar playing an octave up on this):
eb--------------------------|
Bb--------------------------|
Gb--------------------------|
Db----7---10-9-7------------|
Ab--0---0--------10--10-10--|
Eb--------------------------|

play three times, then:
eb--------------------|
Bb--------------------|
Gb---------7h9-9-9----|
Db----7--7------------|
Ab--0--0--------------|
Eb--------------------|

...then go back to this, three more times...
eb--------------------------|
Bb--------------------------|
Gb--------------------------|
Db----7---10-9-7------------|
Ab--0---0--------10--10-10--|
Eb--------------------------|

...then...
eb---------------------|
Bb---------------------|
Gb--------7h9-9-9---9--|
Db------------------7--|
Ab--0--0----------0-0--|
Eb---------------------|

during the second repeat of the intro, the backing guitar goes a little like this:
-----------------------------------------------------------------|

I also noticed on the last repeat of the chorus, right before Davey says "Medicate,"
1:11) the guitar does a slide thing like this:
---------------------------|
-10-10-10/13-13-13-13\-----|

Thanks...I found a few things with it, though...

I forgot that before the verse, here...

eb---------------------|
Bb---------------------|
Gb--------7h9-9-9---9--|
Db------------------7--|
Ab--0--0----------0-0--|
Eb---------------------|

it should be this...

eb---------------------|
Bb---------------------|
Gb--------7h9-9-9---9--|
Db---7--7-----------7--|
Ab--0--0----------0-0--|
Eb---------------------|

also, right here before the bridge:

---------|
---------|
-7--7-7\-|
-7--7-7\-|
-5--5-5\-|
-5--5-5\-|

this is the right chord:

---------|
---------|
---------|
-7--7-7\-|
-7--7-7\-|
-5--5-5\-|

that's it for now. and there definitely is some backing guitar in the final chorus before the solo, i'll post that when i figure it out.

great tab. just looking at it i know it sounds right. i dont really like this song but the guitar solo is pretty cool. jade always has great solos even though he has only had like 3 in their song haha.

but the part you werent sure about in the solo has natural harmonics instead of those two notes you had in the 17th and then in the 20th position if u know what im talking about ha

I want to post or [tab]
