QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE - YOU WOULD KNOW (live)

This is how the song is played live, not necessarily how it's played in studio. 
There could be some subtle differences, but it should mostly be the same.

In C standard tuning.

INTRO/VERSE
e|------------|
B|------------|
G|---------7~-|
D|---7---5----|
A|-5---6------|
E|------------|

Verse 1 is changed a little bit, instead of a 7 it's a harmonic on that fret. So 
it'd look like this.
           +
e|------------|
B|------------|
G|---------7--|
D|---7---5----|
A|-5---6------|
E|------------|

Then Josh changes to this while Troy or whoever plays the version of the riff without the harmonic

e|---8-6-8-5~-|
B|-7----------|
G|------------|
D|------------|
A|------------|
E|------------|

PRE-CHORUS

Can be done in combination with the main riff, only the last note is changed to these.

  (shot)   (up)  (ohh)
e|-8b10-----6b8-------|
B|-----------------7~-|
G|--------------------|
D|--------------------|
A|--------------------|
E|--------------------|

CHORUS

Here's something I've never seen any tab get right. Try to do a little sliding from note to note

e|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|-----0-------0-------0------0----|
D|---5-------7-------2------2------|
A|-6-----6-8-----8-3-----3~-----3--|
E|---------------------------------|

The solos generally go like this. They differ slightly at every show, but here's the jist of it

                      (stop)
e|---8---8---8---8-8----------------------------------|
B|-7---7---7---7--7-7--------5-7-7b8-5~--7-5h7h5------|
G|-----------------------------------------------5-7~-|
D|----------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----6h8-8b8.5-8b8.5-8b8.5-6-8/10~--10p8p7-8p7p6-7p6p5---------|
G|-5h7---------------------------------------------------7p6p5-7-|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------------------8b10-|
B|-----8b9-6~-8b9-8-6-8---------8b9-8-6--------|
G|-5-7------------------7b8r7~----------7------|
D|---------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

Then there's a quiet part where Troy plays the chorus riff without any distortion.
Sometimes he might slap a little chorus effect on there as well.
Josh will then proceed to sing this.

"You would know
 You would know
 You would know, ohhhh...
 You would know"

At the last "You would know", the riff goes like this

e|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|-----0-------0-------0~-|
D|---5-------7-------2----|
A|-6-----6-8-----8-3------|
E|------------------------|

Then the whole band comes in, and Josh (and possibly Troy too) play this.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--8------10------5---------------------------------------------|
D|--8-(x4)-10-(x4)-5-(x8)----------------------------------------|
A|--6------8-------3---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

Troy will then begin to play this (to the tune of the "You would know, ohhh..."s), 
with some variations:

e|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|
G|--5b7r5-3-5~-5-3-2-3-2-|
D|-----------------------|
A|-----------------------|
E|-----------------------|

The outro goes like this

e|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|-----0-------0-------0-------0--|
D|---2-------7-------5-------4----|
A|-3-----3-8-----8-6-----6-5------|
E|--------------------------------|

And then it ends like this (usually)

e|---8-6-8-8b10-|
B|-7------------|
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--------------|
E|--------------|

Have fun!

Thanks for this Tab. It's by far the most accurate I've seen for this song!
