NOW I'M NOTHING/TERRIBLE LIE

transcribed by John Vettese (spex49d@prodigy.com)

as recorded on Nine Inch Nails' Bootleg, Solid Gold Hell

-If you don't have this bootleg, don't worry. Terrible Lie is pretty much

the same in this live version as it is on the album except for the jam

section and some lyric changes. I also transcribed the synth part in the

chorus from Pretty Hate Machine to make it easier for you to hear.

Everything else is from Solid Gold Hell, but like it said, it works out

pretty much the same as on PHM, and it gives you a pretty good idea what

do do with this song if you're preforming it live. Another point: a

similar Terrible Lie can be found on the Coming Down Fast bootleg, except

without Now I'm Nothing.



TABULATURE EXPLANATION

^ = hammer on/pulloff

() = sustained note

/ = slide

/\/\/ = vibrate w/tremelo bar





1) Now I'm Nothing

(Guitar/Bass out)

I am gonna smash myself to pieces.

I am gonna fuck myself up.

I am sifting through the ashes

Of what I have become.



(Bass enters)

  I gave myself a-way, now I'm  nothing.

w/Bass Fig. 1 (3 times)

I let it slip away, now I'm nothing.

All that I can do is break myself in two.

I fucked it all away, not I'm nothing.



(Guitar/Bass out)

Wave, wave, wave, wave goodbye.

Wave, wave, wave, wave goodbye.

AHHHH!
