Subject: TAB:  Maggot Brain by Funkadelic

     Maggot Brain
     by Funkadelic
     from the LP MAGGOT BRAIN
     from: Peter Mosinskis  

     heavy, heavy, HEAVY metal...from Eddie Hazel.  This album has some
     other heavy grind on it (check out "Super Stupid").  Flea and former
     RHCP guitarist John Frusciante called Funkadelic "heavier than Black
     Sabbath" in a Guitar Player magazine interview a few years ago.

     Intro words:  Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time, for y'all
     have knocked her up.  I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the
     universe, and was not offended, for I knew I had to rise above it all,
     or drown in my own SHIT...

     The arpeggio guitar is clean Strat (I think), neck pickup (or center
     and neck), and turn the tone control down to 5 or so?  The lead is
     probably Strat as well, running a distortion or fuzzbox -->  wah -->
     delay (or reverb or both), something like that.

     ARPEGGIOS--  Em, D, Bm, C

     ...then solo like crazy over E pentatonic.  The arpeggio is a lot of
     fun to jam to.  Go, Maggot Brain...

Great Job with the tabs.... Just a few corrections.... He's playing a '59 Telecaster with a VOX Wah Wah through a Fender Twin Super Reverb with an Echoplex delay. If you've never heard of it, it's a little box that actually records your incoming signal, records it, and allows you to play it back at whatever time you want, so it's like the Ultimate Delay. Hope I've enlightened you.
