Black Crowes – Thorn In My Pride tab

#----------------------------------PLEASE NOTE---------------------------------#
#This file is the author's own work and represents their interpretation of the #

WARNING: this tab is for open G tuning (my favorite) with the capo 
         on the third fret, to subsequently give open Bflat tuning

         i also tabbed it in standard form (so a 3 actually isn't 
         a 3, but a 6) just to cause more difficulty  :)

         this is also from memory, so please bear with me.........

THORN IN MY PRIDE          (ho = hammer off)
-----------------          (h = hammer on)


repeat above three lines, this is the basic pattern Rich plays thru out the song. his chord formations: Bflat (open) Eflat and if i recall, those are the only 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 1 0 two chords that he uses !!! for the chorus, Marc Ford plays this bit:
***(the mighty verses:) Bflat (1st rhythm pattern thru out all verses) Wake me when the day breaks show me how the sun shines Eflat tell me bout your heart--aches Eflat(ho) Bflat who could be so unkind Bflat do you dream to touch me and smile down deep inside Eflat or could you just kill me Eflat(ho) Bflat yeah, it's hard to make up your mind sometimes CHORUS: Bflat angel, devil, a thorn in my pride my angels, my devils, a thorn in my pride (1st riff again) Bflat are you wanting inspiration you spill your secrets on me Eflat then you tell me with a whis--per Eflat(ho) Bflat of things that will never be Bflat do you hear me breathing does it make you wanna scream Eflat did you ever like a bad dream Eflat(ho) Bflat yeah, sometimes life is obscene CHORUS: Bflat angel, devil, a thorn in my pride my angels, my devils baby, a thorn in my pride *** this is the little interlude where Chris goes nuts *** i play the progression something like this (just groove however it *** feels):
lover, cover me with your sleep let your love light shine, let it shine lover, cover me with a good dream ooh, let your love light shine, let it shine (solo - based on same verse riffs) and the rest of the song, you can figure out from what i've put up above of course, Rich never plays a song the same way twice, so just try it a few times and do whatever feels comfortable i apologize for not tabbing the solos, and other parts that the lead guitar plays, i'm more of a "rhythm makes the song" player, so that's what i listen for (besides, Marc never plays a solo or fill the same way either :) )
