            It's Nice to Know You Work Alone - Silversun Pickups
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ahrum
Email: Themoogledance@hotmail.com

This is probably my favorite Silversun Pickups song, for its gritty
grunge feel to it.

To get a good sound w/o pedals, I cut the tone to 0 on my guitar, use
the rhythm pickups, and turn the treble and middle values on my amp to
about 3 o'clock (12 o'clock being normal)... it's a pretty sick sound,
and I enjoy playing that way.

Feel free to e-mail me w/ comments.

Tuning: Drop D

UPDATE: (4/17)  Updated the Chorus and a bit of the Solo, also the last
"main" riff, thanks to HappyGilmore899.

Great tab, I'm impressed you already have this up.

Overall its pretty solid (I gave it a 4) but the solo sounds off to me. I'm not entirely sure what's going on there but I slowed it down in audacity and it seems like there is a note missed on the 3-5/10-12 on the D string part throughout. That plus towards the end of the chorus I think you've missed a little variant that occurs.

The Corrections are solid. It's going to be damn near impossible to get the solo right just given the guitar tone but overall it gives a great feel for the song. The Chorus is about 98% right but I do believe at the end of the Chorus theres a variant (Right during the last "It's Nice To Know You Work Alone") to it. I'm not entirely sure what it is but it almost sounds he could be going A# - G. It's hard to tell what it is behind the bass. A little later I'm going to grab my guitar and see if that could be it and let you know if I spot anything with the solo. Overall great job bro, Keep it up!
