I am a big Queens of the stone age fan. i tried the other versions of this song but it
sound right to me, so i tabbed this for you. It sounds almost exact to me, the timing
exact...improvise lol, anyways i hope you find it useful. the chorus took me forever and 
as close as i could get it, i had to use a program to kind of mute the drumming so i
hear the guitar part and i think theres 3 guitars or 2 guitars and distorted bass or 
in this song but i just tabbed it in 2 Guitar parts.

Enjoy. :)

which could be quite soon haha.
