Tuning: Normal

L Dopa is the fourth song on Big Blacks final studio LP, Songs About Fucking. Like most of the
album, its short, fast, and noisy as hell. Its about a sleeping sickness epidemic in the 1920s,
where people just slept for years and years, woke up as old people, their youths wasted away
without their actual realizing it  and all of them asked to be killed or else killed themselves.
Yeah, thats Big Black for you. Heres the tab.

Intro/Main Riff:
The intro is on a bass, so when it comes to playing the riff on guitar for the second 
when it comes in, its just the same notes only with powerchords.
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-2-2-5-5-5-5--3-2-2-2-2-2-3-3-3-2-2-2-2--|

He plays several different harmonies over this riff, so if youve got an extra guitar 
he can keep with the above riff. This is the first harmony; it sounds weird by itself but 
fits into the actual song:

e|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-5-5-5-5-5-4-4-4-4-6-6-6-6-4-4-4-4----|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------|

This harmony then goes straight into a third octave of the original main riff, 
played on the high E.

e|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-0-0-0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-3-1-0-0-0-0-1-0-0-0-0|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus (of sorts):

e|------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-6-5-5-5-8-5-6-5-5-5-8-5-6-5-5-5-8-5-6-5-5-5-5--------------------|
The harmony of which goes:

e|------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------|

The only different part of this song is the solo  if you can call it that  which is 
some weird sounds played over what appears to be a D note on the bass, but who knows? 
whack over muted strings and itll sound fine!
And thats it. Heres the lyrics:

I got a sickness sweet as a love note
I got a headache like a pillow
Called me Daisy, called me Daisy, called me Daisy, that one
Called me Daisy
I am a sweetheart
I am a prom queen
I am some puppies
What, Daisy?
What, Daisy?
Are we here now?
I am a horror
This is an old one
What, Daisy?
L Dopa fixed me, all right
