Type O Negative - Life Is Killing Me tab

Band: Type O Negative
Album: Life Is Killing Me
Song: Life Is Killing Me
Tuning: B E A D F# B

Notes
+ Intro - You can also use the A string to play the slide notes which would 
require less finger movement.  I just prefer the way I tabbed it.
+ Verse 1 and the quiet part before it are played by a synth.
  I toggle to the neck position and turn my tone knob to zero on the guitar and play softly.
+ Verse endings: I’m not 100% sure on these.
  Please comment if you have a better way of playing them.
+ Chorus is bass and keys driven. I put the bass notes so you can play power chords if you want,
  but I also put the 'real' guitar part first - which are the lead lines.
+ Verse 3 Variation is pretty close. It is really hard to tell the difference 
between keys and guitar in many parts.
