Song: Vermicide
Artist: The Mars Volta
Album: Amputechture
Tabbed By: Nathan Zwiener
Tuning: Standard

Intro (0:00)
e|------------------------/19b~---19b---19b-------|
B|--17-----15--11----/17--------------------/17~--|
G|------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------|

Verse (0:22) - Quiet acoustic, most likely the keyboard+bass.
This probably isn't correct but it's close. It's so quiet in the song so it's hard to tab.
Just do stuff with the above intro for the electric effects.
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|  Repeat
|--0----0---2----2---4----4---5--5--4--2--|       x4
|--2--2---2-2--2---2-2--2---2-2-----------|
|-----------------------------------------|

Chorus (0:45) * = Short
   *     *
|-------------------------------|-------------|
|-------------------------------|-------------|
|-------------------------------|-------------|
|--------2--5----5h7------------|--5-------2--|
|--7-----2--5----------7--5--4--|--5---5---2--|
|--0-------------------5--3--2--|------5------|
           Repeat x4               After...

Post-Chorus Solo (1:14) - This is really fun to play. :)
|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-4--4--4-2---0-2--4---2-2--0-----------------2----------------------|
|------------------------------2-4-5-4-2-4--5----2-4-5-4-2-4--5-2--0-|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------|


Now repeat the verse part above. (1:25)
After that, repeat the chorus part above. (2:00)


(2:28) This part has no guitar, but here's the bassline.
It's hard to understand, so sorry if it sounds wrong.
G|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------|
E|--0--0--7--7--3--3--0--0--2--h5p2h5--|

Lead Guitar (2:53)             Now play this with the sax
|------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|--17-15-15--------------|--15--17--15--------------------------|
|-----------17-17-16-14--|--------------17--16--14--19--17--16--|
|------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|------------------------|--------------------------------------|

Lead Guitar (3:26) - Another guitar plays the Post-Chorus solo with this.
|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|--12b13~------\5~--7--8~----/10--10h12h13-10h12h13-10h12h13--|
|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------|

After that he does some stuff too fast for me to tab.
Pick it back up at 3:42. Screeeaaam with your guitar!
Play on any one of the two octaves here.
|--------17-19-20-19-17-19-21b23~--|
|----------------------------------|
|--------14-16-17-16-14-16-17b19~--|
|--14~-----------------------------|
|----------------------------------|
|----------------------------------|

Now play the chorus again. (3:46) This time with more emotion.

Outro (4:07)                     "Beep!"
|---------------------------|--22-(21b22)--|
|---------------------------|--------------|
|--2--4--5--4--2------------|--------------|

            ~~~LYRICS~~~
Straight from the Amputechture booklet.


There with them is error
We are sacrosanct
A taunting of ravens to you
My swarms have fit the holster
My faith burnt every house
Like no other manger
I am emptier with doubt

Bare them
Sevens
Three to a pall
Marks the
Venom
Lush and terminal

When I became your larvae
You fed me from your plates
Now my slouch is nervous
Sinking by the face
Wrinkled by this gravel
Skinless trace of time
Wear your cobwebs proudly
In your cheap and brittle sight
My glands emit this carnage
These pews bend back your knees
That uniform it wears you
When the ultimatum pleads

Bare them
Sevens
Three to a pall
Marks the
Venom
Lush and terminal
[Repeat]

That cesspool it becomes you
Just north of the eyebrows
Squat the hole for a plucker
When the rations go blonde
The salted stitch is patient
Waiting to engulf
There is plasma from this hoax
Pretending to be us

Embalming all the fluids, I must, I must
I prefer to burn them, I must, I must

Bare them
Sevens
Three to a pall
Marks the
Venom
Lush and terminal

I found that just playing Em, Bm, D and Am over the verse works nicely. Thanks for the tab btw, really helped me learn the song.
