Here is an accurate version of Mr. Bungle's coolest song: Retrovertigo. I
learned most of this song by watching the user "leobacodionisio" play this
song on youtube. I learned a little more by viewing some tabs available on
this site. For accuracy of chords, go by my CHORD KEY rather than this
site's interpretation of what it thinks the chords should look like. I soon
plan on playing this version on my youtube channel "Kylork" as a
demonstration. Enjoy =)

note: the distiction between G and G2 is merely finger positioning, but
still important to follow.

Intro: C, C+ x4

Dm           F7+5
Before you advertise
Dm              F7+5
All the fame is implied
Dm            F7+5
With no fortune unseen
          C
Sell the rights
        F#
To your blight
         Eaddb13
Time-machine
Dmadd9               F7+5
While I'm dulled by excess
Dmadd9        F7+5
And a cynic at best
Dm          F7+5
My art imitates crime
         C
Paid for by
    F#
The allies
      Eaddb13
So invest
Am      Cadd9   F7         F      G
Now I'm finding truth is a ruin
Am       Cadd9    F7     F          G
Nauseous end that nobody is pursuing
Am       Cadd9 D      
Staring  into  glassy eyes
G2    Bdim7
Mesmerized
Am        Cadd9   F7       F         G
There's a vintage thirst returning
Am      Cadd9     F7    F               G
But I'm sheltered by my channel-surfing
Am    Cadd9  D
Every famine virtual
Fm6
Retrovertigo

Transition:
C, C+ x4
Dm, F7+5 x3

Fm                      C
A tribute to false memories
Am
With conviction
G#
Cheap imitation
Fm                  C
Is it fashion or disease?
Am
Post-ironic
G#
Remains a mouth to feed
          C
Sell the rights
          F#
To your blight
           E      E7
And you'll eat
Am      Cadd9   F7         F      G
Now I'm finding truth is a ruin
Am       Cadd9    F7     F           G
Nauseous end that nobody is pursuing
Am      Cadd9 D
Staring into  glassy eyes
G2    Bdim7
Mesmerized
Am      Cadd9   F7    F         G
See the vintage robot wearied
Am     Cadd9  F7   F              G
Then awakened by revision theories
Am    Cadd9  D
Every famine virtual
Fm6
Retrovertigo

(Yes they really do leave the Fm6 chord just hanging there at the end. But
if you prefer a softer ending, just add a C chord after the Fm6.)

Great transcription, I think it's 100% right.

Think I'd replace all the Bdim7 with G#dim. Virtually the same chord but somehow it plays better 45643x
Other than that, really good job!

"G2" is written wrong. It should be the third fret of the B and e strings, not the second. Also I would change the name of it because it looks like it's wrong on purpose and that is simply a G2 chord
