Katy Perry – Self-inflicted tab

                                           Self-Infected by Katy Perry
Okey, first of all. This is my version of the song (made acoustic / easier)
and perhaps it dosen´t match at 100% of the original. However it´s a
great song and the versions of it i found on the internet was a bit too
bright for my voice to keep up with, so i made a tab myself. The only
thing that could be tricky is the pre-chorus, it can take some time to get
the rythm right there, however the song is otherwise pretty easy.
Feel free to mail me forcorrections etc at:
Enjoy :D

Chords used:
Bm: 2 2 4 4 3 2       D:  0 0 0 2 3 2       Dsus4: 0 0 0 2 3 3

Em: 0 2 2 0 0 0       Em7: 0 2 2 0 3 3      Cadd9: 0 3 2 0 3 3

G: 3 2 0 0 0 3        C: 0 3 2 0 1 0

C+ is in this case a normal C chord but with the G note added on the thin
 E string. Just to spice things up a little bit. Like this:  0 3 2 0 1 3

For soloing or riff / fill-making i suggest the G-major scale.

Standard tuning ( E A D G B e)  Capo on 2nd or 3rd fret, I got it on 3rd.


G                              Em
Remember when I dove into the ground
     C                    G
And I got a bloody knee under my skin
A scar from wiping out
    C                    C+
It brings back the memories


Em7           Cadd9
Every bone’s been broken
     D		Dsus4
But my heart is still wide open


G	      D                Em
I can’t stop, don’t care if I lose
       Bm                  C
Baby, you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self-inflicted
    G           D                  Em
And I’m going down in flames for you
       Bm                     C
Baby, you are the weapon I choose
                   D               C
These wounds are self-inflicted
                 D	         G
One more thing I’m addicted to

(play verse)
With each scar there’s a map that tells a story
What a souvenir of young love’s like
Jumpin out an airplane right in a tidal wave of

(play pre-chorus)
An ocean
Of emotion
My heart rips me wide open



    Em                  G
And I, cover up these scars

(we make up, then we break up*)
    Em                    G
And I, cant stop seeing stars
(I’m so knocked out whenever you’re around*)

Chorus (play two times)


Play the chorus over and over, and just go with the song like:

“Ooh i can´t stop, no i can´t stop”

End on G and fade out if possible
*Back-up singing if possible, ask your girlfriend.
