			     HELICOPTER - Butthole Surfers
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Tyler J
Email: full_metal_orange AT hotmail DOT com

Tuning: Standard


G-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------14-14--14-14-14-15-15\--|

w/ fuzz... bend the non-open notes on the low E a bit.

that's the basic riff... there's a few variations but i don't feel
like tabbing them all....

chorus:

G-------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------\17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17--|  repeat
A--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
E-------------------------------------------------|

alternately, you can play the A on the 12th fret of the A string and cross over
to the 12th fret of the G string. it's probably easier to have the droning
A so you can vary the high note like the other choruses...

so those are the basic riffs, jeff improvises a lot around them, but they are
the core riffs.

the outro just jams away on the main E riff, w/ tons of skronky improv.
the heavy distortion is pretty essential to the overall sound.
