Placebo - Flesh Mechanic tab

One of my favourite songs, surprisingly hard to find a decent tab for it, here is the 
complete song, with mouth organ transcribed for guitar as well. Pretty sure this is more 
or less bang on the money, it's certainly enough to work with to learn the song.


Tuning: Half step up (or standard tuning with capo on the first fret)Placebo songs 
around this time tended to be tuned a half step up with 2 high C's to create a nice drone, I 
think because of the open chords this is tuned with a high F but it sounds fine either way.

Strumming Pattern: Pretty easy to figure out, I've tried to give a rough indication 
within the tab, better limp up those wrists if you wanna play it exactly like Mr Molko.
