MACHINEHEAD
by Bush
written by Gavin Rossedale for the album Sixteen Stone        This is a kick ass song. Here it is. Have fun!

Guitar 1


Opening riff (played 10 times):

E |-------------------------------------------------------|
B |-------------------------------------------------------|
G |---6---6--8--8--8--9--9--11-11-------------------------|
D |---X---X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--------------------------|
A |---4---4--6--6--6--7--7--9--9--------------------------|
E |-------------------------------------------------------|

Fill #1:

E |---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B |---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G |--6--6--X--X--X--6--6--6--X--X--X--X--6--6--X--X--X--6--6--6--X--X--X--X---|
D |--6--6--X--X--X--6--6--6--X--X--X--X--6--6--X--X--X--6--6--6--X--X--X--X---|
A |--4--4--X--X--X--4--4--4--X--X--X--X--4--4--X--X--X--4--4--4--X--X--X--X---|

G |---2--2--X--X--X--2--2--2--X--X--X--X--2--2--X--X--X--2--2--2--X--X--X--X---|

G |---6---6--8--8--8--9--9--11-11------6--6--8--8--8--9--9--11-11-----------|
D |---X---X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X-------X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X------------|
A |---4---4--6--6--6--7--7--9--9-------4--4--6--6--6--7--7--9--9------------|
E |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E |----9999/7777/9999/7777 /9999/7777/9999/7777/------------------|
B |----9999/7777/9999/7777/9999/7777/9999/7777/-------------------|
G |---------------------------------------------------------------|
D |---------------------------------------------------------------|
A |---------------------------------------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------------------------------------|


Now the lyrics come in. The guitar starts playing when Gavin says "tied to
a wheel..."
Then you play fill #1 twice:

then this:

E |--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G |---6---6--8--8--8--9--9--11-11----- 6--6--8--8--8--9--9--11-11------|
D |---X---X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X-------X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X-------|
A |---4---4--6--6--6--7--7--9--9-------4--4--6--6--6--7--7--9--9-------|
E |--------------------------------------------------------------------|

E |----9999/7777/9999/7777 /9999/7777/9999/7777/------------------|
B |----9999/7777/9999/7777/9999/7777/9999/7777/-------------------|
G |---------------------------------------------------------------|
D |---------------------------------------------------------------|
A |---------------------------------------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------------------------------------|

Then you start play when Gaving sings "Deaf dumb thirty".
Then you play Fill #1 twice through.

Then there's a pause:
The lyrics go

Got a machine head
        Better than the rest
Green to read
        Machinehead

Then you play this twice
 Fill #2

E |--------0---------0---------0---------0-------|
B |----4h5---5---4h5---5---4h5---5---4h5--5------|
G |----------------------------------------------|
D |----------------------------------------------|
A |----------------------------------------------|
E |----------------------------------------------|

Then the song goes
"I walk for my machine"
And you play this twice

Fill #3

E |--------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------|
G |--------------------------2--2--2-2-2-2--2--2-----|
D |--4--4--4-4-4-4--4--4-----2--2--2-2-2-2--2--2-----|
A |--4--4--4-4-4-4--4--4-----0--0--0-0-0-0--0--0-----|
E |--2--2--2-2-2-2--2--2-----------------------------|

Then the music fades and there's sort of a drum solo:
In the Backround really softly, you can hear the opening riff played twice.
Actually, they use a mixer a you probably don't have one.
Then Gavin starts singing "Breath in, breath out..."
You play Fill #1 once only.
And once thechorus starts, you play this:


E |----------------------------------------------------------------|
B |----------------------------------------------------------------|
G |----9--9--9-----------------------------------------------------|
D |----9--9--9---9--9--9--9--9---11--11--11---7--7--7--7--7--------|
A |----7--7--7---9--9--9--9--9---11--11--11---7--7--7--7--7--------|
E |--------------7--7--7--7--7---9---9---9----5--5--5--5--5--------|

That lasts almost the rest of the song for guitar #1 but when Gavin
Finishes singing
"Yeah yeah yeah", guitar #2 playes this:

E |-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B |-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G |---9--9--9--11--9--9--9----9--9--9--11--9--9--9--------------------|
D |---X--X--X--X---X--X--X----X--X--X--X---X--X--X--------------------|
A |---7--7--7--9---7--7--7----7--7--7--9---7--7--7--------------------|
E |-------------------------------------------------------------------|


This is played until the end of the song until gaving starts singing
"I walk for my machine........". Then you play this:

E |------------------------------------------------------------------|
B |------------------------------------------------------------------|
G |------------------------------------------------------------------|
D |------------------------------------------------------------------|
A |---4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4hhh7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7----------------|
E |---2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2hhh5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5----------------|


AND THAT'S THE SONG!
