Queens Of The Stone Age - Misfit Love tab

Tabbed by sixwheeledbeast
Queens of the Stone Age - Misfit Love
Tuning: C# Standard [C# F# B E G# c#]

The tuning for most of Era Vulargis is actually C#/Db Standard.
With this song using a open string chord, it's important to tune
up half a step from C Standard (used on previous albums).

Although the song can be played in C Standard or even E Standard,
this is the tuning it's actually played in.

This song has a very loose structure and uses scratching/string noise 
throughout. The text parts of the tab will explain further.

PM any questions/corrections thanks, rate please.

KEY
x  - mute
b  - bend
