"The Nurse Who Loved Me" by Failure

Tune 1/2 step down: eb, Bb, Gb, Db, Ab, Eb

===Verse===

"Say hello to the rug's topography.
It holds quite a lot of interest with your face down on it."

===Chorus===

"I'm taking her home with me.
All dressed in white.
She's got everything I need.
Pharmacy keys.
She's falling hard for me.
I can see it in her eyes.
She acts just like a nurse.
With all the other guys."

Piano enters

===2ND Verse===

"Say hello to the apples on the ground.
They were once in your eyes, but you sneezed them out while sleeping.
Say hello to everything you've left behind.
It's even more a part of your life now that you can't touch it.

Guitar 1 is the same as in the first verse

Guitar 2 continues to play the same thing as in the interlude

===2ND Chorus===

Guitar 1's part is played by an electric with heavy distortion

Guitar 2's part is played by an electric with distortion and flanger

===2ND Interlude===

You get the picture.

Pretty much nothing new from here on out.  The solo is a lot of electronics that I don't 
so I'm not going to try to figure it out.  Have fun!

this is pretty good, the only thing that is missing is the climatic solo, but another person has uploaded it half a step up in standard so maybe the two of you could combine these and transpose it to all fit.

I agree that its 90% spot on, but I think the chorus is missing a chord, specifically a Db major between the A major and Ab major.

So like:

eb|-3--6--5--5
Bb|-3--6--7--5
Gb|-4--7--7--6
Db|-5--8--7--7
Ab|-5--8--5--7
Eb|-3--6--x--5
