QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE - YOU'RE SO VAGUE

A Rated R era B-side that needs to be played much more often live, to those who aren't 
familiar with this tune (which would make me question why you're bothing to look at a tab 
for a song you've never listened to, but whatever)

In C standard tuning (C-F-A#-D#-G-C).

INTRO

This is preferably done with a volume pedal. If you're lacking one, just strum each of 
these notes twice. There's probably notes played on the G string, but I'm not entirely 
sure. Play whatever sounds best to you.

e|--19---20---17---15---|
B|----------------------|
G|-(16)-(17)-(14)-(12)--|
D|----------------------|
A|----------------------|
E|----------------------|

There's another guitar doing this in time with the part above. Do it the same way as 
above, with a volume pedal or hitting the notes twice if you're lacking one.

e|----------------------|
B|----------------------|
G|----------------------|
D|--14---14---14---14---|
A|----------------------|
E|----------------------|

After that, slide up the low E string to about 12 or so and kick in to the main riff

VERSE 1

e|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|--9---11---12---15---16-----|
D|--9---11---12---15---16-----|
A|--7---9----10---13---14-----|
E|----0----0----0----0--------|

After you do that, do some kind of muted strumming thing with the occasional lick and 
then get back into the main riff.

Here's a few examples of these sections throughout the song.

(0:15-0:17)

G|-----------------------|

E|-----------------------|

Or hey, do yourself a favour and come up with your own thing.

CHORUS

Two parts to this.

Part 1: "Baby, you're so vague..."

e|-----14-------14-------14-------14-|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|-----11-------11-------11-------11-|
D|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------|
E|-0-0----0-0-0----0-0-0----0-0-0----|

Part 2: "...that you probably think this song ain't about you"

e|-14--10-10--11-|
B|---------------|
G|-11--7--7---8--|
D|---------------|
A|---------------|
E|---------------|

INTERLUDE

Similar to the chorus, only this note is played twice in place of the 14/11, then a 
lick. The 11s can be played with a volume pedal without sounding stupid, but I don't think 
it's used in the studio recording.

e|-------------------10----------|
B|----------------12----12-------|
G|--11--11---9-12----------12-9--|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|

This is done a few more times, but the last lick is changed slightly to this

e|---------------------|
B|------12-11-------12-|
G|-9-12--------12-9----|
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|


VERSE 2

Same as verse 1, but halfway through, the guitar starts going like this. (This is when 
Josh starts singing "setting you up")

e|--12--14---15---18---19-----|
B|----------------------------|
G|--9---11---12---15---16-----|
D|----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|
E|----0----0----0----0--------|

SOLO


                                  *very small part I cannot for the life of me figure 
out because of Josh singing*

E|---------------------|

If you need help on making up your own thing, use this as a basis or any Mexicola solo, 
as the two songs are quite similar and will fit quite nicely. If you've listened to a 
live version of this song, you'll find that they're almost the same.

OUTRO

Mister guitarist numero dos will play this over the end of Josh's solo.

e|-----14--15--18--19--|
B|---------------------|
G|-----11--12--15--16--|
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|
E|-0-0-----------------|

That's all, folks. Careful now.
