The Mars Volta - Eunuch Provocateur
---
tab by p. alvarez

This is how I learned to play the song. I won't say it's the MOST accurate
but it's definitely close. I'm just going to list the parts in order, it's
up to you to figure out how many times and how quickly yourself by playing
along to the recording. Corrections (especially for the last parts posted),
comments, etc: vacuumo at gmail.com

Standard tuning

Intro

They play the first part however many times. The part after the bars is a
variation that gets thrown in when the drums and bass start.

the Al-Sirat hides

|---------------------------------------------12-12-12-|
|-13-------13------13----------------------------------|
|-12-------12------12----------------------------------|

The 12-13 chord makes it difficult to jump into the next 12-11-12 chord so
I wouldn't blame you if you decided to just hit an open E.

(bass, affected guitar, noise. if you really want to play the bass part and
can't learn it by ear you're probably not up for learning this song.)

"The cauldrons have eyes"

|-15-------------12-------0-----6-7-6-5--7---------------------------------|

|-------12-13-------12-13---7-----------------9------9---9-------4p0-3p0-4-|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

More of the "Al-Sirat hides" part, followed by "Cauldrons have eyes" part
(though Cedric sings "tribunals installed" this time around).

"I've caught mono bobbing for barbed wire"

------------|-------------7--------9-10-------------------------------------|

------------|-9-9-9--------------------------9-8-9------9-------------------|
------------|--------------------------------------10-----10----------------|
------------|---------------------------------------------------------------|

The (p0)s are pull-offs to the open string and are sort of grace notes.

"Al-sirat hides", etc
