"Please Please Please" - Deftones (originally by the Smiths)
Taken from the "7 Words" cassette single...and Napster :)
Tabbed by Tim Millard (
Standard tuning (EADGBE)

One of the Deftones' better songs, Chino's vocals in this are amazing 
IMHO.  Listen to song for proper timings, as these are probably off.

While the A chord is being played, a second guitar throws in this little riff.

Finish out the first chorus with this riff before going back to the verse...
E ------------------------B ----------------10-7~~~-G -11-9-11-9-7-6----------D ------------------------A ------------------------E ------------------------
At the end of the second chorus, do not play the chorus, riff, rather play this...

A second guitar plays this small riff over the A chord...
E ------------B ------------G ------------D ------------A -5~~~--7~~~-E ------------
Solo / Outro: During the solo, the notes are held and played VERY fast. I wasn't able to get the exact timing from the song, so if you have the song handy, play along with it. If you don't have the song or can't play that fast, play the single notes. The rhythm guitar plays the chorus chords until the point indicated...
