Verse The verse is divided into three different parts. It is the same basic riff just a little different on the endings. Kirk plays his riff along with Jaymz' three diffenent riffs. I'll put all the different parts together at the end. Jaymz (Riff 1) Riff Ending

This fill is played after the chorus and before Jaymz starts in on the second verse. Riff 1 is played under this fill. Try playing this fill through the neck pickup. Sounds almost exactly like the CD.

The "Da, da, da" part has about five guitars playing under it, so I'm gonna try and tab them the best I can. This is rhythm part under the "Aye, da, da, da" part.

These next two parts are played together with the "Da, da, da" part. It's exactly the same as what she sings.

Finally figured out the high screechy part!!! One guitar plays the high ass part while the other doubles it lower. The high part is played with some kind of messed up pitch shifter effect or something.

Fortune fame, mirror vane, gone insane, but the memory remains Heavy rings on fingers wave Another star denies the grave See the nowhere crowd cry the nowhere tears of honor Like the twisted vines that grow That hide and swallow mansions whole And dim the light of an already faded prima donna chorus Heavy rings on cigarettes Up tp lips that time forgets While the Hollywood sun sets behind your back And can't the band play on? Just listen, they play my song Ash to ash Dust to dust Fade to black chorus Dance little tin goddess da, da, da..... /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ Question, comments, abuse?
