                                                  HEAD - Mark Lanegan Band
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: inobscura


Ok, this is a great song off the great Bubblegum album. The crux of it is a
simple 3-chord progression: D-F-C-D. I discovered it, playing along using 
power chords, but I think it sounds much better using open chords.


The main part, used in the intro, the pre-chorus and the chorus, sounds like
it has some distortion and a little bit of overdrive.

You can pretty much get away with playing the entire song, just using this:


    D               F              C               D

e|--2-----2-----2-2-1-1-----1---|--0--0--0-----0-0-2-2-----2----|  |
B|--3-----3-----3-3-1-1-----1---|--1--1--1-----1-1-3-3-----3----|  |
G|--2-----2-----2-2-2-2-----2---|--0--0--0-----0-0-2-2-----2----|x2|
D|--0-----0-----0-0-3-3-----3---|--2--2--2-----2-2-0-0-----0----|  |
A|------------------3-3-----3---|--3--3--3-----3-3--------------|  |
E|------------------1-1-----1---|-------------------------------|  |



The verses are played on an electric keyboard. If you want to play it on 
guitar, try this. It's never going to sound the exact same on guitar, but 
it's close enough and will certainly suffice.

once this section starts (2 bars in) it's played right throughout the song


This is the lead work that is played during the chorus. (I've included a 
loose strumming pattern of the chords to help with timing)

That's about it. I hope this helps. 

Enjoy.
