Placebo - Meds

tabbed by Captain Planet
Please don't publish this tab on your site without my
permission.

I know Brian Molko uses odd tunings but this is the way 
I play it in standard tuning with a capo. Sounds virtually 
spot-on.

***CAPO ON 3RD FRET*** 
everything is in relation to the capo (E.g. the first chord
which is x466xx, is an E5 chord starting on the 7th fret
if there was no capo)


Intro and Verse chords (you can work the rhythm out...)

|-----------------------|
|-----------------------|
|----6---6---6---6------|
|----6---6---6---6------|
|----4---x---x---x------|
|--------0---5---4------|


then this comes in for "Baby, did you forget to take your meds"
|-----------------------|------------------------|
|-----------------------|------------------------|
|--8-/-9-9-9-9-\-8-8-8--|--8-/-11111111-\-8-8-8--|
|--x-/-x-x-x-x-\-x-x-x--|--x-/-x-x-x-x--\-x-x-x--|
|--6-/-7-7-7-7-\-6-6-6--|--6-/-9-9-9-9--\-6-6-6--|
|-----------------------|------------------------|


The "Sex and drugs and complications" bit (the 
slides above are played over the top)

     x32    x32
|-----------------------|
|-----------------------|
|--4------6-------------|
|--4------6-------------|
|--2------4-------------|
|-----------------------|


then this played over the chords in the final chorus:

|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------|
|---6-\--xxxx---9-\--xxxx---6-\--xxxx---6\5-x--6-8---|
|---x-\--xxxx---x-\--xxxx---x-\--xxxx---x\x-x--x-x---|
|---4-\--xxxx---7-\--xxxx---4-\--xxxx---4\3-x--4-6---|
|----------------------------------------------------|

play that measure once, then you have the bends in between
each octave the remainder of the chorus (remember everything
is still in relation to the capo):

|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------|
|--------5b6----------5b6---------5b6----------4b5---| X2
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------|

|----------------------------------------------------|
|--------13b14--------13b14--------13b14-------12b13-| x4
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------|

Then end with the intro chords X1
