1. mr self destruct

Tabbed by The Great Apocalyzard
(JRocket859@msn.com)

As opposed to this song's other tabs, (of which are great, by the way) I will
attempt to tab out EVERY guitar/bass/synth-related note played. Without the
inclusion of synth and bass, this song is virtually nothing. Now, onward.

(About the tuning: This song is tuned Drop-D, both the bass and the guitar.
I believe it is the only song on 'The Downward Spiral' tuned this way. Correct
me if I am wrong.)


* The VERSE Area *

GUITAR - Main Verse Riff
e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------|
D|-7-/-8-/-10----------------------------|
A|-5-/-6-/--8----------------------------|
D|-0-------------------------------------|

Contrary to what the other tabs tell you, the first chord is only struck ONCE.
Immediately after strumming it, you slide up to the next two chords, muting
the top string with your forefinger on the way. Don't worry, muting the string
isn't hard. Most of the time, you do the slide and mute the top string without
even realizing it.

BASSLINE
G|------------|
D|------------|
A|------------|
D|-0~---------|

Yeah, that's it for the bass in the verse. Every measure, the bass rings out
with the open top string. You can sort of emulate this by doing it on the guitar,
but SLIGHTLY palm-muting it. That means your palm is barely touching the strings.
It should suffice.

SYNTHLINE
e|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---------------------|
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|
D|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0...--|

The synthline begins right before the Guitar riff plays. It's just the open top
string, but palm-muted and picked tremolo (REALLY fast).


* The CHORUS Area *

GUITAR - Chorus Riff
e|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|--------------------------|
D|-10~-11~-11-/-13-/-14-----|
A|--8~--9~--9-/-11-/-12-----|
D|--------------------------|

Pretty self explanatory (*snicker* Yeah. Right.). Strum the the first chord, let
it ring, then strum the second chord, and let that ring as well. Strum the second
chord again, but don't let it ring this time. This time, slide up to the following
chords. I hope you understood that. Because I didn't, and I suck at explanation.

The bass is almost the same as the verse. It rings AFTER the chorus riff is played.
It also plays along with the guitar, making the exact same notes it does.

During the fourth time you play the chorus riff, the synth makes this strange noise.
e|-10p8--10-/-8~-|
B|---------------|
G|---------------|
D|---------------|
A|---------------|
D|---------------|
It sounds like it's using a WHOLE lot of chorus (an effect to make it sound like
more than one instrument is playing) with the Rate knob turned up (If you don't
know what this means, ignore it).

After playing the chorus riff four times, a variation of the verse riff starts up.
Pay attention, because things get REALLY tricky from here.
e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------|
D|-x-7-x-7-x-7-x-7-x-7-x-7-7-/-8-/-10----|
A|-x-5-x-5-x-5-x-5-x-5-x-5-5-/-6-/--8----|
D|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-------------|
Put your fingers into position for the chord and downstrum it, without pressing
down on the strings. Then, on the upstrum, press down on the strings, repeating
the motions for the amount specified. It's tricky to do if your a beginner. After
that's through, do the main riff slide. Do all of this twice.

* Return to the VERSE Area *

The verse is exactly the same, except with the addition of a few repeating guitar
licks.

FIRST REPEATING LICK
e|-----------|
B|-----------|
G|-----------|
D|-7-/-5-----|
A|-----------|
D|-----------|
Play that over and over until it stops when it does in the song.

SECOND REPEATING LICK
e|----------|
B|----------|
G|----------|
D|-5-/-6----|
A|----------|
D|----------|
Play that for the next measure, then repeat the first lick for the following measure.


The song goes through another chorus, with no differences to the last one, and
then suddenly goes into the bridge of the song. The bass does most of the work
here.

* The BRIDGE Area *

BASSLINE
G|--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-1-1-1-1-2-2-2-2-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-1-1-1-1-2-2-2-2-3-3-3--------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------3-0----|
The bass plays that repeatedly, really quiet. The guitar makes improvised,
untabbable noise in the background. Just make your fingers go crazy on the
fretboard and pick erradically to emulate that.

SYNTHLINE
e|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|------------------------|
D|----18~--------18~------|
A|-17------15-17----------|
D|------------------------|
The synth plays this towards the middle.

The song plays the verse one last time, same as before (Second verse).
The chorus follows, and it repeats with static rising in the background. It
is suddenly cut short and is replaced with the sounds of two guitars making
improvised, untabbable noise and sped up to a higher-pitched, faster rate.
The song ends. And so does my tab.

       prebend and release note is accomplished by (full) bending the
       note before striking it, and then releasing the bend gradually.

  [INTRO] cool synth vibe / strange bass with screams

[VERSE1]
i beat my machine it's a part of me it's inside of me
i'm stuck in this dream it's changing me i am becoming
the me that you know had some second thoughts
he's covered with scabs and he is broken and sore
the me that you know doesn't come around much
that part of me isn't here anymore

[VERSE2]
all pain disappears it's the nature of my circuitry
drowns out all i hear there's no escape from this my new consciousness
that me that you know used to have feelings
but the blood has stopped pumping and he's left to decay
the me that you know is now made up of wires
and even when i'm right with you i'm so far away
i can try to get away but i've strapped myself in
i can try to scratch away the sound in my ears
i can see it killing away all my bad parts
i don't want to listen but it's all too clear

9. big man with a gun


here's big man with a gun.  it's a fairly short song, so the
transcription is short as well.  the first line below is the
basic keyboard line, tabbed to bass.


G|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|
A|------------------------------5--|
E|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-6------|


E|------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------|
D|--7------8------9-9-9-9---------7--8---9-9-9-9--|
A|--5------6------7-7-7-7------5--5--6---7-7-7-7--|
E|-------------------------0-6---------0----------|

i appoligize in advance for anyone trying to learn
this, as the timing is really weird, and very hard
for me to transcribe.  i guess the only thing that
i can suggest would be to practice by playing along
with the tape/CD.

Here's the keyboard and guitar tablature for Nine Inch Nail's
A WARM PLACE from _The Downward Spiral_
Transcribed by: Andy Kershaw
                     ^v^v^v^A Warm Place^v^v^v^
                                 NIN

First this is the guitar part, played with an acoustic sound...

E:------------------------------------------------|
B:------------------------------------------------|
G:--------------3-------5-0-3---------------------|
D:----------5-6---1-1---------1-------------------|
A:--3-5-6-8---------------------------------------|
E:------------------------------------------------|

Listen to it on the CD _The Downward Spiral_ or the _Natural Born Killers_
soundtrack to get the timing right.

Now the synth part...
Again, listen on the CD to get the timing right. Use a warm organ-tpye
synth sound, played around mid to lower keyboard.
The first is all chords:
                    D minor
                    C major
                    A# major
                    F major
Then the second part is first single notes, then progresses to chords...
                It goes:
                    G
                    F
                    G
                    F
                    G (hold)
                    F (hold)
                    D#
                Then you play:
                    G
                    A#
                    D#
                Then play these chords
                    G minor
                    A# major
                    D# major
This should get you through the song. Again, if you've never heard it before
I'd advise you listen to it and get a feel for it.

 I LOVE this song! So make sure if you play it, that you play it well.
    It'll make me feel better:)
    Be sure to tune your bottom string down to D before you begin...
    "gb" stands for "gradual bend" and "PM" stands for "Palm Mute"
