Tuning: Dropped Db Half Step Down



Someone had a really good tab on this song and somehow its not on here 
anymore. I dunno what happened, but from looking at that persons tab
(Giving Credit where its due) and from what I got from listening to the song
here's my version of Save Me by Staind from "The Illusion of Progress" CD



Intro:

  Theres some kind of funky chorus effect with a piano to open the song with
the guitar in the background

    Clean Guitar *You could put in a lil delay if you want the notes to last

  For Intro it's repeated twice  (2x)

  Chorus With Distortion

   The Chorus is pretty cool but I have two different ways to play it

1st  Way


e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|
A|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|
E|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----5--5-----8---s---10---5--5-----8---s---10------------------------------|
A|----5--5------------------5--5---------------------------------------------|
E|----5--5-----8---s---10---5--5-----8---s---10------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|
A|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|
E|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----5--5-----8---s---10---5--5-----8---s---10------------------------------|
A|----5--5------------------5--5---------------------------------------------|
E|----5--5-----8---s---10---5--5-----8---s---10------------------------------|


e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--3--3--3--3--3------------------------------|
A|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--3--3--3--3--3------------------------------|
E|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--3--3--3--3--3------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----5--5--5--5--5--5--5---5--5--5--5--5--5--5------------------------------|
A|----5--5--5--5--5--5--5---5--5--5--5--5--5--5------------------------------|

D|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|
A|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|
E|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----5~----let it ring*-----------------------------------------------------|
A|----5~---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----5~---------------------------------------------------------------------|

2nd Way

  When you go to the 5  5 on the Db Ab Db strings then on the Gb string hit
 the 3rd fret and bend till you get the sound of the 5th fret


 2nd Verse same as the first repeat

 Chorus repeat the same thing 3x then on the 4th


e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|
A|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|
E|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--0-p-3--3--0--3-----------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----5~--------------------5--5--5--5--5--5--5------------------------------|
A|----5~--------------------5--5--5--5--5--5--5------------------------------|
E|----5~--------------------5--5--5--5--5--5--5------------------------------| 
*Palm mute -----------|




 Bridge:

   I don't know the bend notes exactly but I'm pretty sure on the rythmn
  
      Repeat as much as necessary
   
   Rythmn Guitar:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8--8--8--8---5--5--5--5--5--5------------------------------------|
A|----6--6--6--6--6--6---3--3--3--3--3--3---5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--|
E|------------------------------------------5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--|


 Lead Guitar
 
  The lead is doing nothing but bends, I think I hear small licks in there
but I can't make it out

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----12b~-----12~-----10~-------9b~--it's held for a while-----------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|



Then the interlude is the same as the verse but its all bass notes

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------8----------10---------------------3-----------5------------------|
A|---------------8------------8---------------------3----------3-------------|
E|----8----------------------------8-----3--------------------------3--------|


e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------5-----------8---------------------5-----------8------------------|
A|---------------5------------5---------------------5----------5-------------|
E|----5----------------------------5-----5--------------------------5--------|

         *Strum each chord once and let it ring
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------8~----------------3~-------------------------------------------|
A|------------8~----------------3~-------------------------------------------|
E|------------8~----------------3~-------------------------------------------|


Then the Pre-Chorus Past again With Distortion

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--3--3--3--3--3------------------------------|
A|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8---3--3--3--3--3--3--3------------------------------|

E|----5--5--5--5--5--5--5---5--5--5--5--5--5--5------------------------------|


Then the Ending is the first two bridge chords


e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8---5~-------*Let it ring-------------------------|
A|----6--6--6--6--6--6--6--6---3~--------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


The very last part you could do the effect the album has or just do the
verse riff once and strum the last chord and let it ring to end it

whatever you wanna do

let me know what you think, if it needs corrections anywhere you think it 
does let me know
