"Honey Bucket" by the Melvins
from Houdini
Tabbed by Mr. Cancelled (dopasaurusrex@gmail.com)


Drop D Tuning (e,B,G,D,A,D)

The other tabs for this song kinda suck, so here's my take on it. It sounds
pretty accurate when I play it, but maybe I'm tone deaf. You decide.

Just repeat this riff ad nausum until the chorus-type thing.

Repeat the verse (applying palm mutes to everything but the first fret during
the vocals), then play the chorus. End the song right before the open palm 
mutes. Enjoy.

Good tab! Seems accurate to me.

The only thing I would suggest is that the intro riff sounds better as a power chord to me, so instead of that first riff I would use

D-0-1-0-1-0-0-7-0-0-
A-0-1-0-1-0-0-7-0-0-
D-0-1-0-1-0-0-7-0-0-


on the three lowest strings. Still a good tab though!

Clearly wrong. Nothing like the real tabs. Even on the video of Buzz showing how to play is nothing like these tabs.
