Queens of the Stone Age - Misfit Love
Tuning: C# Standard [C# F# B E G# c#]

The tuning for most of Era Vulargis is actually C#/Db Standard.
With this song using a open string chord, it's important to tune
up half a step from C Standard (used on previous albums).

Although the song can be played in C Standard or even E Standard,
this is the tuning it's actually played in.

This song has a very loose structure and uses scratching/string noise 
throughout. The text parts of the tab will explain further.

PM any questions/corrections thanks, rate please.

KEY
x  - mute
b  - bend
r  - release
~  - vibrato
qb - quick bend
pb - pre-bend
NH - Natural Harmonic (lightly pressing strings at numbered fret)
TP - tremolo picking

Pick Scrapes during Intro
Starts at (0:22) with scratching riff.

These noises are made with harmonics on the 14th and 17th frets. 

In the faster scratching parts a slapback delay effect is used 
to make the strumming sound even faster.

As far as I'm aware, QOTSA have never used C# Standard tuning, this song is in E standard. This tab is missing a few parts (e.g. the 2nd guitar in the outro/dead man walking in the dead of night) but it is nice to see the synth part transcribed.
