                        I Appear Missing - Queens Of The Stone Age
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: LeFlo
Tuning: Standard EADGBe
Nice overdrive, reverb, neck pickup. Take care to have a similar sound on
Guitar 1 and 2, which will give the desired cutting "choir-y" effect during the chorus.

!! 8th note Shuffle feel !!

Please watch my cover for more explicit timing, rhythm, etc.

Only covers the 3-minute album version. Check out other tabs for the second part
of the song.

GUITAR 2 (Troy Van Leeuwen)


Guitar Intro: Actually Troy only plays this from Verse 2. But you could also play 
it right from the beginning
if there is no keyboard to play the higher-pitched riff.

Not sure who gave your tab 1 star. But they're on crack, this is the BEST I appear missing tab yet!

Great tab and vid on youtube.
I think in guitar 2 intro, 2nd and 5th bar 7 and 9 on E and A string are reversed. (I wish I could figure out how to use tab correction)

Also, the intro sounds an octave higher so I think maybe the intro on version 1 might be correct.
