SONG FOR THE DEAD-QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE-SONGS FOR THE DEAF
Tabbed by:Frusciante_50
C Standard Tuning (C F Bb Eb G C)

Note: qb=quarter bend  hb=half bend  b=bend as much as possible  p=pull off

      h=hammer on  v=vibrato

I decided to tab out a QOTSA song, so I tuned down to C Standard, and realised that
was no tabs for this song, so I decided to give it a go. I'm pretty sure that there is a few
and loads of notes missing from the solo, but I usually just improvise something, and 
sure Josh does too, but everything is in the right key, and if you play it loud enough,
still sounds awesome.


Intro:

 c|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Eb|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

 C|-0--12--0-0--12--0-0--12--0-0--12--0-0--12--0-0--12--0-0--12--0-0--12----|

Be careful not to bend, as this is easy when the strings are tuned so low. If you want
attack the riff, you can hit the 11th fret, and bend it slightly.

Play previous riff until (loads of vibrato):
                           (Slightly bend the 15 on G string)

Bb|-7hb-5---------------------------------------------------12--14----------|
 F|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 C|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The rest of the solo is pretty aimless

Another verse comes in with similar fills to the previous verses.
You then repeat figure A
Outro riff is the same as the intro riff

HOPE THIS IS OK
ENJOY!

The intro is actually a natural harmonic on the 5th fret instead of the 12.
