WHO WAS IN MY ROOM LAST NIGHT? - The Butthole Surfers

This song is in Drop-D tuning (DADGBE).

There's a couple of guitars on this song, mainly
divided between lead/rhythm.

b = bend
\ = slide
^ = hammer-on or pull-off
/ (under note) = fast tremolo pick (listen to record)

Use a tremolo bar for extra effect on the bends.

Intro/Verse:
E-------------------|
B-------------------|
G-------------------|
D--0-0-0-0-3-5-3-0--|
A--0-0-0-0-3-5-3-0--|
D--0-0-0-0-3-5-3-0--|

"Chorus":
both guitars:
E--------------------------------------------------------|

G--5\7--5\7--5\7--5\7------------------------------------| X 2
D--5\7--5\7--5\7--5\7------3-5-3------------3-5-3--------|

guitar 1:                                           *****
E----------------------------------------------------------------5---| hold bend

***** this maneuver is used several times during the solo. pre-bend the 8th
fret note (G) up a full step to A, pick, release the bend down to G, and
pull-off to F. if you have trouble with this, you can play this double
pull off on the B string instead:  B--10^8^6--
