HELP ME I AM IN HELL (transcribed out by Elissa Feit)
1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 andE---------------------------|--------------------------|B---------------------------|-----------9--------------|G---------------------------|--7-----7-----------------|D---9--9--9--10-10-10-10-10-|--X--10-X--X--X--X--X--X--|A---7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|E---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
The "X" signifies the muting/dampening of the string. Suggestions: play the 7 on A with your index finger. Play the 9 on D with your 4th (out of 5) finger. Play the 10 on D with your pinky. Play the 7 on with your 3rd finger and leave it there - don't lift it for the remainder of the measure. Play the 10 on A with the 4th, play the 9 on B also with the 4th and hold it there to ring out for the rest of the measure. Keep the E and A string as a steady drone.
1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 andE---------------------------|--------------------------|B---------------------------|--------------------------|G---------------------------|-----------------7--------|D---9--9--9--10-10-10-10-10-|--7--7--7--6-----6--------|A---7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|E---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
Play all 4 measures over and over, etc... Suggestions: same fingering for the third measure as the first. I find it easiest to play the 7-7 in the fourth measure with my 3rd and 4th fingers. Then when I hit the 6 on D, I can use my index finger without lifting my third finger up. Let the first 6 on D ring for that extra eighth note. Let the 7 on G ring for the remainder of the measure. HAPPINESS IN SLAVERY distorted synth & drum sounds here...
