Title: Never Met a Girl Like You Before
Transcribed by: Mark Paré
Email: mpare@haverford.edu

For some reason this wasn't tabbed. It's all there: just a matter of listening to the
song and putting it together. I'm not exactly sure what chords all this is over, but I
do Cmin, Eb, Cmin, Gmin, and it sounds all right. Keep in mind, the chords alternate
between Cmin and Eb only at the "You made me acknowledge the devil in me" part of the
song.  If you want the effects, use a whammy pedal.  And finally, Iggy Pop is the man.

 Fade out.  Oh yeah.  If you have a whammy pedal it makes this badass.

Because it's not by Iggy Pop; it's by Edwyn Collins. If you want a better tab, look at the ones transcribed under Edwyn Collins.
