                             THE FUZZ – Silversun Pickups
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: nolanwalker93

Tuning: EADGBe

Okay, so the intro is some crazy synthetic nervous breakdown, so I cant help you there,
but I think I have figured it out from there.

Bassline (0:11):
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------0-2-0----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----0-0h2-------5-5------------------------------------------------------|
A|-0-0-----------------3-3h5p3-2h3p2----------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------3--------------------------------------|

^ This can be played in a variety of ways, but this is the way I play on guitar.

Verse Riff (0:34):
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-0-0h2-2-2-0---0-2-2-2-2--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------3------------------------------------------------|

The last note of the Verse Riff is hit quickly, so hit it with a sharp upstroke. Make
sure you mute the A string with the finger holding down the E. This plays 2x.

Chorus Riff (0:55):

    C               E
e|-----------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------3-|
G|--0---------------0--------------0-|
D|--2---------------2--------------2-|   2x
A|--3---------------2--------------2-|
E|-----------------------------------|
    ^               ^              ^
Strum 4x or so    Strum 3x or so   Hit Once

THEN immediately after the second time, hit an A chord, then slide up.

     A
e|------|
B|---2--|
G|---2--|
D|---2--|
A|------|
E|------|

(Just so there is no confusion, here is the A chord)

The Verse Riff then plays over the verse, plus a spacey sound effect which you can
create if you mess around with effects and play these notes:

Space Riff (1:24):

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--4~---------2~-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------5~--------2~----------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Play this twice, then the Chorus Riff, except instead of sliding up when you hit A,
strum it a few times. Listen to album to get the exact number of times.

After that, the Space Riff plays, and I can pick up a very faint riff.

Very Faint Riff (1:53):

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----5~--------3~---2~-----------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Im not 100% sure about it, but I think that is how it is played. If you mess around on
the high B and e strings, you can probably find something that works as well.

After that plays, the Verse Riff plays again over the singing, with slight variation
(which I couldn’t figure out for the life of me. Sorry).

SOLO (3:21):

Its very similar to the bassline, with a few adjustments.

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------0-2-0---------------------------------------------------------|
A|------0-0h2--------5-5/----3-3h5p3-2h3p2----------------------------------|
E|-5-5/------------------------------------3--------------------------------|

Repeat this 4x, then the Space Riff and Very Riff play, then it goes silent for the drums.
The next part after the drums/vocal solo, the “too bad its been here for a while” part
at the end, the Verse Riff plays, but only hit these notes at first:

(4:28):

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-2-2-2----------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then hit the A chord and repeat the Chorus Riff pattern a few times. End with the Space
Riff, and that’s The Fuzz.

I realize this might be a bit confusing in some places. Please comment as to how I can
fix it up a bit, if at all. These are the basic patterns played throughout the whole
song. Everything else is synthetics or crazy guitar effects. Again, please let me know 
if there are any errors or organizational fixings that I can make to make this tab easier to
read. Thanks. Enjoy.
