Headshrinker
(Gallagher)
Some Might Say EP (1995),The Masterplan (1998),though written in 1992
NOTES-this is a pretty easy one, but very fast. best to have two guitars but sounds okay with just one. The only parts I’m not sure of are the end of solo 3 and the outro. Other than that, this is a very accurate transcription.

guitar 2 plays nothing, just distortion feedback

fpr outro guitar 1 messes around with harmonics, pulloffs, hammerons on the D chord (x57775)
guitar 2 plays riff 2

Song Structure: 
Intro/riff 1 x2, guitar 2 joins in on second time
>>Play riff 2 over
I know a girl that’s lost and lonely
Sits by the phone on her own
But the phone don’t ring
And the birds don’t sing in their tree
She lost herself in a haze of pity
And doesn’t know where to run
Needs a headshrinker now
And I think it’s time we had some fun
>>play riff 3 over
lost in a fog
I’ve been treated like a dog
And I’m out of here
I got no name
And I feel no shame
And I got no fear
And I bow down to the tears of a clown
Whatever’s going down
Is coming around
I hope you don’t regret today
For the rest of your…
>>play riff 4 over
…lives
for the rest of your lives
for the rest of your lives
for the rest of your lives
>>play solo 1
>>play riff 3 over
lost in a fog
I’ve been treated like a dog
And I’m out of here
I got no name
And I feel no shame
And I got no fear
And I bow down to the tears of a clown
Whatever’s going down
Is coming around
I hope you don’t regret today
For the rest of your lives
>>just feedback and drums then
>>play solo 2
>>play solo 3 over
I know a girl that’s lost and lonely
Sits by the phone on her own
But the phone don’t ring
And the birds don’t sing in their tree
>>play riff 2 over
She lost herself in a haze of pity
And doesn’t know where to run
Needs a headshrinker now
And I think it’s time we had some fun
>>play riff 3 over
lost in a fog
I’ve been treated like a dog
And I’m out of here
I got no name
And I feel no shame
And I got no fear
And I bow down to the tears of a clown
Whatever’s going down
Is coming around
I hope you don’t regret today

>>play riff 4/outro over
…lives
for the rest of your lives
for the rest of your lives
for the rest of your lives
