Subject: TAB: Rubella by the Smoking Popes

Artist: Smoking Popes
Album: Born To Quit (Capitol Records)
Author: John Atkinson

Since there's precious little tab for this great band, I figgered I'd
tab out one of the cooler songs on the 'Born To Quit' album.  The chords
are accurate - the solo sections are only approximations, and he uses some
FX that I'm not sure of on it.  It's close enough for me, though - you
might want to take it up an octave or something.  Try to get a clean but
slightly fuzzy sound on this one.  My Ibanez Tube Screamer works great.
Questions and comments much appreciated...


- Solo:

A ----------2-3-5b7b5-------2h3------0h2h3p2p0-------3-2-0------|
E ----3-----------------3---------0--------------3-----------3--|

(Chords under solo)
      G                 D         C              G

- Verse:

	D   					G			F
I'm inflamed with desire and it's spreading like wildfire
G		E			   A		D
She doesn't know it but she'll soon be mine
Bb	D#	Bb	   D  	G
It's just a question of time
C		G
 	D				G		F
I'm in-sanely obsessed and I simply will not rest
G    		E			A	   D
She doesn't know it yet but she's the one
Bb	D# 		Bb	D		G
And   I won't   stop until I'm done
C 		G

- Bridge:
		C			  Cm			G
And the 	heart that she has stolen has now swollen
	B			E
to twice its natural size
	A			   C 			D	C
I've lost six pounds since I laid eyes on her


- Solo 2 (real unsure on this one):

A -------0---2--3----------3-2-0-----------3-2-0------------------|
E ---3----------------3------------3---0-----------3-----0---3----|

(Chords under solo)
	G		    D				 C			 G

- Verse:
	  D				G		F
I'm in love with a girl she's infected my whole world
G		E			  A	   D
She doesn't know it but she's inside me
Bb  D#	 Bb	D		G
And now I've gone completely
C		G
	D				   G			F
She explodes like a fist and she burns from the first kiss
G		E			  A	   D
I haven't told her but she's all mine now
Bb  D#	Bb 	   D
I knew somehow I'd catch her
	Rubella x6

End with the trademark Popes' stinger on G.

Replace the A with Am and E with Em everywhere, and if you use B7 instead of B for the bridge it sounds a bit nicer ;) good tab tho
