Nine Inch Nails - Head Like A Hole tab

			Head Like a Hole :- Nine Inch Nails  (Trent Reznor)
			~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~      

The main bassline for the song is:

G|----------------------------------------D|----------------------------------------A|----------------------------------------E|---12-0-0----13-0-0----10-0---5-0--4-0--
This bassline kicks in for all the verses (God money...etc.) and is the intro to the song with a drum machine. I can only play the guitar at the chorus: It's 2 chords:
E(XII) 12-14-14-13-12-12 A(XII) x-12-14-14-14-x
[ In the Video Trent actually plays E(VII) x(0)-7-9-9-9-x but the other is easier to play when singing along, and sounds fine. ] It's something like: E////////////////////A////////////////E///////////////////A/// Head Like a Hole, Black as your soul, I'd rather die than give you control ////////////E////////////////////A////////////////E///////////////////A////// Head Like a Hole, Black as your soul, I'd rather die than give you control As you can see it's simply thrah out those (power) chords. You can hear it on the album. As for the other bit after the chorus: Bow down before the one you serve ... etc... I haven't figured it out yet. It's a different Bassline, possibly with keyboards. --oOo-- From: keeler@bnr.ca (Tony Vaserfirer) This is an arrangement (meaning the way I play it, not exactly how Trent plays it.) Since almost the whole song is drum machines and synthesizer's, its hard to play live. So here is a way you may want to play it, if you and your friends want to jam. Oh year and thanks to Tim Davis (davist@cs.man.ac.uk) for the Bass line. Darrell Head Like a Hole :- Nine Inch Nails (Trent Reznor)

God money don't want everything he want it all. Bridge 1: Guitar (out) Bass (Riff 1) No you can't take it, no no you can't take it. (No you can't take it away from me.)
