Lostprophets - I Dont Know
Tabber: Will Sharp
Tuning: Drop D (EBGDAD)
Email: chimaira_tool@hotmail.com


This is all my own work an the first tab out 4 this, dont bother 
ripping it off.  Solo is 100%, exact frets an everything. This was 
tabbed out on my guitar in CGCFAD tuning with a capo on 2nd to put 
it into standard drop D.  This does mean that it removes my 21st an 
22nd frets but i used the high E to replicate those missing frets
during the solo but tabbed it with 21st fret in use.

Feel free to email me with any comments.

Guitar 2 always has a light distortion on, Guitar 1 is varied.

In areas of the Chorus, Guitar 2's chords sound to go lower, at other
times they don't so it is up what you play - you either repeat the:

	11th fret chord twice or,
	play the 11th fret chord then play 9th fret chord.

Remember that the 11th fret chord also = 4,6,6 chord on A,D,G strings
and the 9th fret chord = 2,4,4 chord on A,D,G strings.  Tho I'd suggest
only using these for guitar 2 during the chorus.

SOLO:
Guitar 1: (Distortion)

For the pinch harmonic below (*), play the ph first, then bend the string up, then
release it back. On my guitar, play the harmonic just past the bridge humbucker.

The ending screeching bit isnt pinch harmonics btw, it is the b string being bent
upwards.  Hold the first 'pair' of notes for a fraction of a second before playing
the next 2 in that 'set'

hi, im the author of thsi tab, check mxtabs for the up2date version as i have noticed that the 9th fret chords during the chorus should b an 11th fret chord. This can either b repeated twice or can be played 1nce an go back to the 9th fret again for 1 repeat.

Or you can use 4,6,6 power chord on A,D,G strings and a 2,4,4 chord on same strings.

I hav a commenter on this tab to thank for this correction so thx.

pretty good tab mate, the solo's a bit wrong tho, i prefer to play the slide bit as hammer ons instead it sounds better and its easier, and it cant reach from 14 to 21 on the end bit so improvise there, still pretty dam good tho, 5 stars from me
