                             IF ONLY - QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Johan "Buck" Noren
Email: johan.noren@gmail.com

Tuning: C G Eb Bb F C (standard QOTSA tuning)

This song is from their first album, one of the best in my opinion :) I would
like to say this one is 100% correct, i've heard and seen them live enough times
to get it down right. Drop me a line if you feel otherwise.


[Intro/verse]

This riff is played through out the song, even during the solo.

If it gets you down, well then i'll take it....

F |---8--8--8--x-x--7-7-------5---5-5--555-5-5-----|
C |------------------------------------------------|

When they play it live they sometimes switch between the one above and this one. Only one small change.

One problem: there's another 5-5-5 played twice before it goes back to the 8-8-8
