Song: The Grudge
Artist: Tool
Album: Lateralus

        Tabbed By Steve

        Intro/theme x4
G|----------14--------12--------17--------14----------------|
D|*--0h13p0----0h13p0----0h13p0----0h13p0------------------*|
A|*--------------------------------------------------------*|
D|----------------------------------------------------------|

        After that x4
G|-----------7----------------------7-----------3---|
D|*--0h1p0------0h1p0---3---0h1p0-------0h1p0------*|
A|*------------------------------------------------*|
D|--------------------------------------------------|

        Build-up
G|-------------------------------------------|
D|---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---|
A|-------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------|

        Then play the intro/theme until it explodes, get a rhythm and don’t let the 
vocals (Wear the Grudge like a crown) throw you off, it has it’s own rhythm.


        Explosion
G|---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7---7-7---|
D|---0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0---0-0---|
A|---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5---5-5---|
D|---0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0---0-0---|

        Little bass part
G|-------14-------17-----------------|
D|----------15-14----------15-14-----|
A|-17-15-------------17-15-----------|
D|-----------------------------------|

        Verse   The timing is a little weird so try to sort it out
G|---------------------------|
D|*-------------------------*|
A|*--------------------3h5--*|
D|---0--0-0-2-0---2-3--------|

Pre-chorus/post chorus/other – it follows the rhythm of the first vocal part 
where Maynard says “wear the grudge like a crown of negativity etc…”
G|---7-7-7-7-7-7---7---7--7-7-7-7---7-7-7--7-7-7---7-7-7---|
D|---0-0-0-0-0-0---0---0--0-0-0-0---0-0-0--0-0-0---0-0-0---|
A|---5-5-5-5-5-5---5---5--5-5-5-5---5-5-5--5-5-5---5-5-5---|
D|---0-0-0-0-0-0---0---0--0-0-0-0---0-0-0--0-0-0---0-0-0---|

        Chorus – the same as the verse with more emphasis on the first beat of each 
bar.  Listen for when to emphasize.
G|---------------------------|
D|*-------------------------*|
A|*--------------------3h5--*|
D|---0--0-0-2-0---2-3--------|

  After that comes this part, which appears later, as with the rest, listen 
for the correct timing.  This continues with variations all the way to the 
little bass interlude.

G|-------------------------------|
D|*-----------------------------*|
A|*--3p0---5p3p0----------------*|
D|-------0-------3---0---0h3-3---|

        Bass Interlude – “choose to…let this go…” play that 4x
G|------10-----5h7---10---9---7---|
D|*--0------0--------------------*|
A|*-------------------8---7---5--*|
D|--------------------------------|

        Then drop an octave to this
G|-------------------------------|
D|*-----------------------------*|
A|*-----------------------8h10--*|
D|---0---12---0---10h12----------|

        Explosion
G|---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7---7-7---|
D|---0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0---0-0---|
A|---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5---5-5---|
D|---0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0---0-0---|


Then blast right back into the main riff
G|--------14-14---------12-12---------17-17---------14-14---|
D|*--000----------000-----------000-----------000----------*|
A|*--------------------------------------------------------*|
D|----------------------------------------------------------|

        And the part after that
G|-----------7----------------------7-----------3---|
D|*--0h1p0------0h1p0---3---0h1p0-------0h1p0------*|
A|*------------------------------------------------*|
D|--------------------------------------------------|

        And after that
G|-------------------------------------------|
D|---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---|
A|-------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------|


       “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!”                    occasionally
G|------------------------------------------------|------------------|
D|*----------------------------------------------*|------------------|
A|*---------5----------------------5-------------*|------------------|
D|---0h1p0------0h1p0---3---0h1p0-----0h1p0---3---|---0h1p0---3--1---|

        After the screaming – check the timing
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---00h1p0-00h1p0-00h1p0-00h1p0-00h1p0-00h1p0-00h1p0-00h1p0-00h1p0---|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

The guitar wails for a little bit and the bass doesn’t play

        Then there’s a really messed up sounding riff
G|----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---0-0-1p0--0-0h1p0-0-0h1p0-0-----------------3--3-3-3—3h5p3-1--|
A|-------------------------------3--3-3-3--3-3--------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------|

G|--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---0--0-0-0h1p0--0-0-0h1p0--0-0-0h1p0---3-3-3-3-3-3h5p3---1---|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------|

After that goes a couple of times the drums blast you away with sporadic 
time changes, fills and bass drum hits to throw you off, play this and 
ignore it.

G|------------------------------------------------|
D|---0--0-0h1p0--0--0h1p0-0--0-0h1p0-0—0--0h1p0---|
A|------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------|

Then finally finish big with this

G|-------------------------------------------7---|
D|---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---0---|
A|-------------------------------------------5---|
D|---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---0h1p0-0---0---|


     That's the song, remember that the timing of it and the layering are 
really bad at throwing you off, so watch out.  This tab should be 90% 
correct, I know that the part until Maynard screams is correct, as I saw 
them play this live at Edgefest '01, but otherwise send any 
corrections/quections/comments to metalliduck62@hotmail.com.
