the guitar on this song sounds like its tuned a bit sharp,
sometimes the chords in the verse sound like F...

Intro riff: (w/ wah-wah)

E--7b--------------X-X-X-X--|B------9~~---9-----X-X-X-X--|G--------------7---X-X-X-X--|D---------------------------|A---------------------------|E---------------------------|
Then, the wah-wah guitar plays this chord:
E-----B-----G--9--D--9--A--7--E-----
And the 2nd guitar plays a lower E:
E-----B-----G-----D--2--A--2--E--0--
Sustain those chords throughout the verses, then go back into the intro riff. After the 2nd verse, play:
E-----------------------------------------------------------|B-----------------------------------------------------------|G--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-5-5-5-5--|D--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-5-5-5-5--|A--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-3-3-3-3--|E-----------------------------------------------------------|
back to E for third verse. then just play C# (w/out the change to C). this is followed by a bass break where the guitars just spew forth noise... then repeat the C# - C riff for the 2nd bass break, the right speaker guitar plays:
E----------------------|B--11b-10-11b-10-11~~--| w/ mucho noize from other guitars...G----------------------|D----------------------|A----------------------|E----------------------|
then another verse... At 3:31, there's this riff, which is the same sorta rhythm as the other one, it stays on the first chord for a long time, then switches briefly:
E-----------------------------------------------------------------|B-----------------------------------------------------------------|G-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-13-13-13-13--|D-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-13-13-13-13--|A--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8-11-11-11-11--|E-----------------------------------------------------------------|
Then, another wah-wah riff:
E---------------|B--11b-11-9~~~--|G---------------|D---------------|A---------------|E---------------|
then all guitars preach the monkey lord's gospel of white noise. ------------------------------------------------- THE BUTTHOLE SURFERS GUITAR/BASS TAB ARCHIVE: http://www.islandnet.com/~mustang/1401/index.html -------------------------------------------------
