Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Standard
YT link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Co5WQiiUuOw



The main riff is played by the bass but you could also play it on a guitar if you 
tuned the heavy E string down to D.

The chorus riff is played by the keyboard but I tabbed it for guitar just for kicks.

Comment or message any ideas or corrections. Please rate my tab. If you've got
problems with the tab, I'd encourage you to contact me with those problems so I
can fix the tab or provide advice for playing. Don't just give me a poor rating
and not give me any feedback. The idea is for us all to work together to create
a perfect finished product. This tab just represents the best I can do. It's 
definitely up for peer review.



Key:
where # represents a fret number

/ \ - slides, up and down respectively.
 *  - time keeper. if you played a steady
      baseline, you'd see the notes are 
      displayed in the tab in the correct 
      chronological order. 
 &  - symbol substitution. some symbols
      (eg double digits) are too big to 
      fit in with the progression.
             

Intro:

Guitar 1 starts at 0:01 and is in Drop D
Guitar 2 starts at 0:08 strums with pattern
Guitar 3 starts at 0:12 strums once quickly every other beat
Guitars 2&3 play the same chords
After 0:16 only the chords played, not the strumming patterns, are shown

Fever, I'm a slave to           Am
No one misbehaved too           F

Wouldn't leave you if I could   F
Fever



Chorus:


1:01

Fever cuz I'm breaking
Fever got me aching
Fever, why don't you explain?

Just go ahead and kill me
Fever, why don't you explain?
Break it down again

Thanks for the tabs, it's an impressive work !
I think there's a slight mistake with the riff (beginning), here is my correction:

Thanks for the feedback man. I think you're right, the chorus changes the 2nd time around. It'd be more helpful if you were more specific with the timing. I can't tell what you mean when you just slop the notes together with no apparent timing.

Is this what you meant? I signified changes with exclamation points.

Yes, sorry, didn't want to mess the timing which is correct.
Just a correction of a few notes starting with the exclamation points.
cheers
