Foo Fighters - Good Grief
From 'Foo Fighters' Debut Album
Drop-D Tuning
tabbed by jjhand

I did this tab since the others missed the 7th chords used in the main riffs. Its harder to 
hear melodic differences like that, but playing the song like this sounds better.


Intro - 
  Guitar 1
e|--------------------|----------------------|-------------------|----------------|
B|--------------------|----------------------|-------------------|----------------|
G|--------------------|----------------------|-----8---------8---|----8----10p8---|<- no 10p

    Bb7                 Db                     F7                  Gb5




Verse 1 - Guitar 2 Intro Part is played by both guitars

Lyrics:  "Since I'm putting down all the true things around but I like" it"
         "I handed down the crown, given jewels and the answers of May"
         "The thought of being ousted comes and goes, comes and goes"
         "When I think about it, the wind blows"

Verse 2 - Same as Verse 1

Lyrics:  "Run me out of town, somewhere a move might intend a gown at"
         "Pissed at all the bowels, always blues and delicate smile"
         "Missed all of the sideways, gull and noun, gull and noun"
         "Chills and petty band-aids, wrapped around"

This is a great tab. The only problem I found is that I think dave grohl adds an extra note on the G string on the power chords of the chorus and bridge. Try it out and see how it sounds (5 stars btw):

Chorus- Heavy Distortion
e|---------------------------|--------------------------|--------------------------|
B|---------------------------|--------------------------|--------------------------|
G|-8-------------3-----------|-5------------8-----------|-3------------5-----------|
D|-6-------------1-----------|-3------------6-----------|-1------------3-----------|
A|-6-------------1-----------|-3------------6-----------|-1------------3-----------|
D|-6----------0--1-----------|-3------------6---------0-|-1------------3-----------|
"Hate it" ... etc
