Finally, some new QOTSA material!

This song seems to be one of those rare QOTSA songs that's played in
standard tuning, though some parts of the bass could benefit from being able
to slide another two frets down from the E, regardless, I've done my best
to bring it all to you in standard tuning.

The bass line is also played by the second guitar for a lot of the
song, so play around with what you think sounds best!

If you notice any errors or have any corrections feel free to email me or

The bass kicks in near the end of the first riff with a slide, then plays
alongside the second riff.

The note on the G string seems to be played by a second guitar, but it's
easily added to just one.

The bass line is what sounds best when played alone, but the guitar line
goes slightly differently.

The solo goes straight back into the chorus, which starts off a little
differently on bass (the slides go down to a D, which obviously isn't
possible on standard, but sounds alright going down to the E)

on the F# the fourth time

Indeed, though the majority of guitar players stay in Standard for the most part, which is why I've tabbed it so you can play it in standard...
