"Blood Witch" by the Melvins
Tab by Turbo_zoobomb

DROP D TUNING!!!


The first 2/3 of the song revolves around this rhythm:

|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|--0------0---0-0-----0-0-0------0-0------0---0-0----0-0-0----|
|--0------0---0-0-----0-0-0------0-0------0---0-0----0-0-0----|
|--0------0---0-0-----0-0-0------0-0------0---0-0----0-0-0----|

It's a weird rhythm to get used to.

I think of it as groups of 1, 2's, and 3's

   1      1     2       3         2       1     2      3

(I hope that helps and doesn't confuse you even more)

The rest is easy but there's a lot of distinct parts that you have to pay close 
attention to so as not to get lost.

|--6----3---5------0------0--0-0--0-3----0-0--5-----0--0-0--0-3------|

                      1: Right in the blood         Maybe it's alive
                      2: Worse on their own         Bottom of the world
                      3: Nothing will be worse      We have learned to think

Repeat from top of verse

PRE-CHORUS 1:


|-------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------5----|   Repeat 4x
|--0------0---0-0-----0-0-0------5----|
|--0------0---0-0-----0-0-0------3----|
|--0------0---0-0-----0-0-0-----------|

Then another verse cycle with this line:

        The mouths and the needs,               how will we breath?

and they like it


PRE-CHORUS 2 is a variation of the first one

|-------------------------------------------------------|
