Band- Queens Of The Stone Age
Song- Wake Up Screaming

Standard Tuning
~ - Vibrato

Intro / Calm Verses
E----------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------|
G-------9~---------10~----------9~----------10~------------------|
D-------------8-----------------------8--------------------------|
A-7-----------------------7--------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|

Then the second guitar comes in and they play this
E----------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------(8~)------------------|
G-------7~----------8~----------7~----------8~-------------------|
D-------------6-----------------------6--------------------------|
A-5-----------------------5--------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|

The 8th fret is played on the higher string by the second guitar in the intro,
and occasionaly sometimes during the verses.

Keep alternating between each one. There are also lead parts, but I cant figure them 
Sorry.

Build up thingy
E----------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----8---7-------8---7------------------------------------------|
G-7-9---9---9-7-9---9---9----------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|

Then

E----------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----6---5-------6---5------------------------------------------|
G-5-7---7---7-5-7---7---7----------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|

Those are easier to play than what I first put.
Then keep playing the first one faster and faster, then

Angry Verses
E----------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D-9-----7--10---9-----7--10---7-----5---8---7-----5---8---9------|
A-7-----5---8---7-----5---8---5-----3---6---5-----3---6---7------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|

Make sure you slide from each one.

Then the song just explodes, and you keep playing those chords.
Strum really fast an stuff. Just listen to the song. Im not doing the strumming pattern.

Then it goes

E----------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D-9-9-9999-------------------------------------------------------|
A-7-7-7777---7---7---7-------------------------------------------|
E------------5---5---5-------------------------------------------|

That four times. Not sure about the pattern, Ill fix it later.
As long as you catch my drift. Or something.

Then it goes back to the main riff of the angry verses.
Then a solo that I\'m not going to try right now. Just improvise something.
The rhythm keeps playing the angry riff.

Post-Solo thingy
E----------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--------------------------------|
A-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|

All of that is palm muted. Then at the end (listen to the song!),
the palm muting slowly comes off and goes to

E----------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--------------------------------|
A-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|

Then its like the angry verses, but a wee bit different
E----------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D-9--------10---9--------10---7---------8---7---------8---9------|
A-7-----8---8---7-----8---8---5-----6---6---5-----6---6---7------|
E-------6-------------6-------------4-------------4--------------|

Again, chords, but no strumming pattern for you! Just listen to the song.
Tis easy.

Then the end is those chords, just played less aggresively and stuff.

I might work on the solo, but I don\'t know if I will be able to get it down.
Someone else might do it.

Anywho, it sounds perfect, just keep listening to the song and youll figure it out right quick.
