Episode III: Josh Homme

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJDUHq2mJx0

I went through the effort of tabbing out the exercises and licks in episode three (Josh Homme
of Queens Of The Stone Age) of Noisey’s series Guitar Moves. Just for you. Tell your friends.

Exercise one:
Intro Riff (00:00 - 00:35)
It’s a pretty simple riff. Josh noodled over it a bit, but I didn’t tab that as it’s just
improvisation and it would have been a pain in the neck. If it’s from a song there’s probably
already a better tab of it, but I don’t know what song it is.

G |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A |---------9\----------5-------7/9---------9\----------5-------7/9-|
E |-7-------7\------5/7-------------7-------7\------5/7-------------|


Exercise two:
The Polka (01:02 - 01:26)
Don’t use a pick. You play the bass notes with your thumb and the other three strings (D, G, B)
with your index, middle and ring finger.

Palm muted

D |-----9-------9-------9-------9-------9-------9-------9-------9---|
A |---------9/11----------------------------9/11--------------------|
E |-7---------------7-------9/11----7---------------7-------9/11----|


Exercise three:
Subtractive Barre Chord Riff (02:42 - 02:49)
For those of you who didn’t know, that’s the correct way to spell barre chord. NOT “bar” chord.
It’s still pronounced “bar” though. Don’t be that guy who says “barray” chords. Don’t be that
guy.

Exercise four:
Subtractive Lick (03:05 - 03:15)

Exercise five:
The Blues Scale With Bits Missing (03:53 - 04:08)
Enough of all this “breaking the rules” gubbins, it’s a Lydian Dominant scale (Lydian with a
flat 7).

E |---|-x-|---|-x-|---|---|---|---|
B |---|---|-x-|-x-|---|-x-|---|---|
G |---|---|-x-|---|-x-|---|---|---|
D |---|---|-x-|-x-|---|-x-|---|---|
A |---|---|-x-|---|-x-|-x-|---|---|
E |---|---|---|-x-|---|-x-|---|---|

He played the scale in the key of D, which would be like so:
E |-----------------------------------------------------8---10------|
B |-----------------------------------------9---10--12--------------|
G |---------------------------------9---11--------------------------|
D |---------------------9---10--12----------------------------------|
A |---------9---11--12----------------------------------------------|
E |-10--12----------------------------------------------------------|

He didn’t play the full scale though, he just played this:
E |---------------------------------10----13----10------------------|
B |--------------10b--12------10-12----12----12---------------------|
G |-------11h13----------13------------------------13~~~------------|
D |-10h12-----------------------------------------------------------|
A |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E |-----------------------------------------------------------------|

E |---------------------10--13~~~--10--13------10-------------------|
B |-----------------10---------------------12-----------------------|
G |---------11--13---------------------------------13~~~------------|
D |-10--12----------------------------------------------------------|
A |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E |-----------------------------------------------------------------|

E |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G |--11-h-13-p-11--------11--------11--13--13b-13-13-13-13b-11------|
D |-----------------12-------12--------------------------------12---|
A |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E |-----------------------------------------------------------------|

Then they improvise a bit, but as I said before improvisation is a pain to tab.


Exercise six:
“Doon doo bee do ween da ferny hern a herny heng” (12:36 - 12:45)

  | 1 - + - + - 2 - + - + - 3 - + - + - 4 - + - + -  |
E |--------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------|
G |---------9p7-9-------7h9-7-------7h9--------------|
D |-------------------------------------7------------|
A |-0-----0-----------0-----------0-----------0------|
E |--------------------------------------------------|

And those are Josh Homme’s guitar moves.

Please rate generously to help my self esteem and keep these coming.

When I can be bothered I’ll do the other episodes.

Have a nice day.
