WHO WAS IN MY ROOM LAST NIGHT? - The Butthole Surfers

This song is in Drop-D tuning (DADGBE).

There's a couple of guitars on this song, mainly
divided between lead/rhythm.

b = bend
\ = slide
^ = hammer-on or pull-off
/ (under note) = fast tremolo pick (listen to record)

Use a tremolo bar for extra effect on the bends.

Intro/Verse:
E-------------------|
B-------------------|
G-------------------|
D--0-0-0-0-3-5-3-0--|
A--0-0-0-0-3-5-3-0--|
D--0-0-0-0-3-5-3-0--|

"Chorus":
both guitars:
E--------------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------------|
G--5\7--5\7--5\7--5\7------------------------------------| X 2
D--5\7--5\7--5\7--5\7------3-5-3------------3-5-3--------|
A--3\5--3\5--3\5--3\5--3-5-------5-3-5--3-5-------5-3-5--|
D--------------------------------------------------------|

guitar 1:                                           *****
E----------------------------------------------------------------5---| hold bend
B-----------------------------------------6~----6-8-b8r^6-6------8b--| and keep
G--5\7--5\7--5\7--5\7---------5---5-5\7-7-----7-------------7~---/---| picking
D--5\7--5\7--5\7--5\7--3-5\7----7--------------------------------/---|
A--3\5--3\5--3\5--3\5------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------------------------|

***** this maneuver is used several times during the solo. pre-bend the 8th
fret note (G) up a full step to A, pick, release the bend down to G, and
pull-off to F. if you have trouble with this, you can play this double
pull off on the B string instead:  B--10^8^6--

guitar 2:

E----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-5\7--5\7--5\7--5\7-------------------------------5\7-7-7-5\7-7-7-5\7-7-7-5\7-7-7-|
D-5\7--5\7--5\7--5\7-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-5\7-7-7-5\7-7-7-5\7-7-7-5\7-7-7-|
A-3\5--3\5--3\5--3\5-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-3\5-5-5-3\5-5-5-3\5-5-5-3\5-5-5-|
D--------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-3-3-3-3---------------------------------|
                                                   .......REPEAT THIS PART.........

The actual solo begins here (rhythm gtr plays verse riff):

E-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------6-8-6-6-8-6---6-6--6-8-6-b8r^6-6---6-8-b8r^6--------6-6-6------|
G------5-7-------------7--------------------7-----------5^7\10-------7~~--|
D--5-7--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E-------------------------------------------------|
B----------6-8-6-8-8-6---6-----6-8-6-8b~~~~\21b/--|
G------5-7-------------7---7~---------------------|
D--5-7--------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------|

Then:

  rhythm gtr:
E--------------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------------|
G--5\7-10/7--5\7--5\7------------------------------------|  play twice
D--5\7-10/7--5\7--5\7------3-5-3------------3-5-3--------|
A--3\5--8/5--3\5--3\5--3-5-------5-3-5--3-5-------5-3-5--|
D--------------------------------------------------------|

  lead gtr:
E--------------------------------------------------------|
B-------6------------------6-8-6------------6-8-6--------|
G--5-7----7--5-7--5-7--5-7-------7-5-7--5-7-------7-5-7--|
D--------------------------------------------------------|
A--------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------------|

repeat the first part of the lead riff, then:

E-------------------------|
B--6-8-8b-8-8-8-8-8-8-8r--|
G-------- hold bend ------|
D-------------------------|
A-------------------------|
D-------------------------|

return to verse.

repeat the "chorus", but go into some brief trem bar exercises before
the next verse.

at the end of the song, do the little run at the end of the chorus,
followed by:

E--20b-- w/ bar --------|
B-----------------------|
G-----------------------|
D--------------------0--|
A--------------------0--| => meltdown.
D--------------------0--|
