Firstly, I know it's meant to be played on synth, but it can still sound
good on guitar.

You will only need one guitar, one bass, and some MASSIVE drums to recreate
this song. Oh, and some vocals.


Intro: Guitar plays this
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-4---4---4-2-0-4-----4---4-2-0-4-2---2---2-0---------------0---2-----------|
E|---------------------------------------------4-2-----2---2---2-------------|
...Bass then joins in playing the same thing, and this riff is repeated over
and over until the end of the first verse when Karin says
"I'm dancing for dollars, and for a fancy man"

Bridge: Played during the ^above^ lyrics
(just before the change to the 2nd riff)
e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|-2---2---2-0---------------0---2------------------|
E|-------------4-2-----2---2---2--------------------|

2nd Riff: This is basically the same, but one octave higher (and possibly play it louder?).
Only Guitar switches to this, Bass continues playing the intro riff.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-6---6---6-4---6------6---6-4---6--4---4---4--------------------4----------|
D|-------------7----------------7--------------7-6-4----4---4-7-4------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Bridge: played during the line, "I'm singing for money, that burns in my hand".
e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------|
G|-4---4---4--------------------4-------------------|
D|-----------7-6-4----4---4-7-4---------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------|

Solo: Sometime after the 2nd verse, a 'solo' replaces the above riffs.
Bass goes like this
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|0~0~0~0~0~0~0~0~2~2~2~2~2~2~2~2~0~0~0~0~0~0~0~0~2~2~2~2~2~2~2~2~-----------|
It basically repeats these two notes with lots of weird effects.

Meanwhile, Guitar goes a little something like this
e|--19~~~-----19--17--19--21---24~~~-------21--19~~~---19-19--17--19--21~~~--|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
                                                (bend as far as possible)
e|-----17---------------16-16-16-19-19-19-24-24-24-24^-------21~~~----------|
B|--19----19---17-17-17-----------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|--24-21-24-21-19-21-19-17-19-17-16-17~~~------14~~~~~----------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
REPEAT this whole 'solo' section once.
The second time round is slightly different (meaning there's about 2 notes
difference, but it's not noticeable, and you should easily be able to figure
it out).


Bass then stops and the drums die down for a bit, while Lead guitar plays
the 2nd riff (the one with the 4's, 6's and 7's).
Bass then joins in again by playing the intro riff.
Continue until the outro.


Outro: Lead guitar plays the intro riff by itself.

Key:

------------------------------------------------

*Note that the only bend in this tab is there because my guitar cannot go any higher.
If you use a pitch bender or something you might be able to get to the right pitch,
but I'd imagine it'd be a lot of hassle just for one note.


If anyone's band covers this song, put it on youtube!!
Thank you!
