WARNING: this tab is for open G tuning (my favorite) with the capo 
         on the third fret, to subsequently give open Bflat tuning

         i also tabbed it in standard form (so a 3 actually isn't 
         a 3, but a 6) just to cause more difficulty  :)

         this is also from memory, so please bear with me.........

THORN IN MY PRIDE          (ho = hammer off)
-----------------          (h = hammer on)





repeat above three lines, this is the basic pattern Rich plays thru out the

his chord formations:

 Bflat (open)         Eflat 
                                       and if i recall, those are the only
 0 0 0 0 0 0       0 0 2 0 1 0         two chords that he uses !!!

for the chorus, Marc Ford plays this bit:


***(the mighty verses:)

Bflat (1st rhythm pattern thru out all verses)

Wake me when the day breaks

show me how the sun shines

tell me bout your heart--aches

Eflat(ho) Bflat
     who could be so unkind


do you dream to touch me 

and smile down deep inside

or could you just kill   me

           Eflat(ho) Bflat
yeah, it's        hard to make up your mind sometimes



angel, devil, a thorn in my pride
my angels, my devils, a thorn in my pride

(1st riff again)

are you wanting inspiration

you spill your secrets on me

then you tell me with a whis--per

      Eflat(ho) Bflat
of     things that will never be

do you hear me breathing

does it make you wanna scream

did you ever like a bad   dream

        Eflat(ho) Bflat
yeah, sometimes life is obscene


angel, devil, a thorn in my pride
my angels, my devils baby, a thorn in my pride

*** this is the little interlude where Chris goes nuts
*** i play the progression something like this (just groove however it 
*** feels):


lover, cover me with your sleep

let your love light shine, let it shine

lover, cover me with a good dream

ooh, let your love light shine, let it shine

(solo - based on same verse riffs)

and the rest of the song, you can figure out from what i've put
up above

of course, Rich never plays a song the same way twice, so just try it 
a few times and do whatever feels comfortable

i apologize for not tabbing the solos, and other parts that the lead
guitar plays, i'm more of a "rhythm makes the song" player, so that's 
what i listen for (besides, Marc never plays a solo or fill the same
way either :)   )

So um...capo is at the fourth, intro riff is the bare minimum, partly wrong. but at least you got the open g right!
