                             TO PARTER - Butthole Surfers
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Tuning: Standard

The guitar on the Cream Corn EP version seems to be tuned
a little bit higher than E, but not quite F.

Intro:

E---------------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------------|
G--slowly bend upwards------------------------------------|
D-----------------------12-12-----12-12-----12-12----12---| REPEAT
A--13-13-13-13-13-13-13-----------------------------------|
E------------------------0--0-0-0-------0-0--------0--0---|

play in a chunky way, picking muted strings along with the notes.

There's another guitar in the right speaker, playing something
similar to the 1st guitar, with tremolo on it.

There's also a lead guitar at times:

Lead gtr overtop:

E--b18r----18---18---18--|
B----------17---17---17--|
G------------------------|
D------------------------|
A------------------------|
E------------------------|

at the end of that section, one guitar plays:

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

and the other plays:

E------------------------|
B------------------------|
G------------------------|
D--12-12-12-12-12-12-12--| etc
A---X--X--X--X--X--X--X--|
E---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|

then repeat the intro.

the solo gtr plays this: (bend/shake each note)

E--18~-18~-18~-18-18-18-18-18~-18~-18~---18-18-18-16~-16~--|
B--17~-17~-17~-17-17-17-17-17~-17~-17~---17-17-17-15~-15~--|
G----------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------|

E--16-16-16--16\18-18\19-19/18-18/16-16~~--|
B--15-15-15--15\17-17\18-18/17-17/15-15~~--|
G------------------------------------------|
D------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------|

Repeat that as a basic lead.

As it builds up, one gtr starts droning on the low E chord and
the right speaker guitar starts playing this:

E------------------------------|
B------------------------------|
G--12-12-12-12----12-12-12-----| keep repeating a variation on this...
D--12-12-12-12----12-12-12-----| at the end of this section pull off to
A--------------14----------14--| the open high B and E strings...
E------------------------------|

THEN:

E-----------------------------|  optional open high B and E strings
B-----------------------------|
G----X-9-X-9-X-9-X-9-X-9-10b--|
D----X-9-X-9-X-9-X-9-X-9-10b--| or just do a subtle slide up to F...
A----X-7-X-7-X-7-X-7-X-7------|  repeat w/ out going to F, then to VERSE.
E--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------|

VERSE:

E---------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------|
G--9-9-9-9-9-5-5-5-5-5-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--|
D--9-9-9-9-9-5-5-5-5-5-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--|
A--7-7-7-7-7-3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--|
E---------------------------------------|

repeat the E / F riff, then:

SOLO:

E--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G--------------------0-------0--------------------------0-------4-4-4---------4-4-4-0--|
D----2-4-5-4-2^0---2-------2---2---2--------2-4-5-2-0-----2----------------------------|
A----------------3-----3-2-------2------2-------------3-----3-2--------2-2-2-----------|
E--0---------------------------------3b---0--------------------------------------------|

E--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----0---0-X-X-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G------0-X-X-X-0------------------------------------------------------0-0-2^0-\4-2-0---|
D--4-----X-X-X----2-0-2-0---0-2-0-----2--------2-4-5--5-4-5-4-2---2-4----------------/-|
A-------------------------3-------3-2------2--------------------3b---------------------|
E---------------------------------------3b---0-----------------------------------------|

The next solo (Gibby?) is far more buried but follows something like this
over the verse chords:

E--------------------------16--15--14----19---21--| bend.......
B--------------16--15--14---/---/---/-----/----/--|
G--16--15--14---/---/---/-------------------------|
D---/---/---/-------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------|

listen to the EP for the picking patterns and how to bend/shake the notes.

For the last verse, play the first solo instead of the normal verse chords.

After that there's another Gibby solo.

Meltdown on B ..........
                      ..........then down to Bb .........
                                                        ......................
...... then completely dissolve to E noizzzze............................. xxx
