 ...said sadly  From The Bullet With Butterfly Wings single. Great song!
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=   If you haven't heard this one, GET IT! James sings and
written by:       plays acoustic and slide, D'arcy on Bass, Kerry on Drums,
 James Iha        and Nina Gordon steps in from fellow Chicago band, Veruca
tabbed by:        Salt... Good Song.
 Davey B./Toast

Soo.. Git your acoustic out, and git yer friend a slide and go to it!

Tuning: 1/2 step down
(tab is represented as normal tuning...)

-- v's and ^'s are picking direction (v's=down towards ground)

-- If there big gaps in the tab where you know he's strumming, yes I know
   he's strumming. I just thought it would look bad and consume time.

A few measures of G chords end the song... And, yes, improvise for what I purposely left out, like go crazy with a solo with the slide during the song. It's easy to find a solo in this happy little melody... Thanks go out to Brian McCall for setting me straight on Obscured. Somehow, I do think that Billy managed to keep normal tuning... -Davey B.

***** Yes.. I am aware that these three notes are the same, but that is how it is played. MAIN SECTION
Guitar 1|---0--0-0-0--------------------3--3-3-2--2-2-----------------||---0--0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3--3-3-----------------||---0--0-0-0-2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-----------------||-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-2--2-2-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-----------------||-2-2--2-2-2-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-----------------||-0-0--0-0-0--------------------------------------------------|
Guitar 2|-------------------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------------------||--2/11~~~~---------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------------------|
Through the verse there is more lead stuff...really easy. Guitar 1 plays the above main section twice and then it goes to this:
|---0--0-0-0--------------------------------------------------||---0--0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-3-3-3-3-3--1-1-1--1-1-1--1-1-1--------||---0--0-0-0-2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-2-2--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--------||-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-2--2-2-0-0-0-0-0--2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2--------||-2-2--2-2-2-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0--3-3-3--3-3-3--3-3-3--------||-0-0--0-0-0--------------------------------------------------|
Guitar 1 does all the above through the verses behind James' and Nina's parts. When it gets to the "Lover..when.." it does this twice.
|---------------------------------0--------------------------||------------------3-3--3-3--1-1--1--------------------------||----0----------0--2-2--2-2--0-0--0--------------------------||----0--0-----0-0--0-0--0-0--2-2--2--------------------------||----x--x--2--2-2--0-0--0-0--3-3--3--------------------------||-3--3--3--3--3-3--------------------------------------------|

Then it goes back to the verse riff simile, but changes on the last bar before it changes to this
|---0--0-0-0--------------------------------------------------||---0--0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3--3-3-----------------||---0--0-0-0-2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-----------------||-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-2--2-2-0-0-0-0-0--4-4-4--4-4-----------------||-2-2--2-2-2-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-----------------||-0-0--0-0-0--------------------------------------------------|
Then to this "Now you know.." bit.|------------------3-------------3----------------------------||------------------1--1-1--1-1-1-1--1-1--1-1-1----------------||----0----------0--0--0-0--0-0-0-0--0-0--0-0-0----------------||----0--0-----0-0--2--2-2--2-2-2-2--2-2--2-2-2----------------||----x--x--2--2-2--3--3-3--3-3-3-3--3-3--3-3-3----------------||-3--3--3--3--3-3---------------------------------------------| *\Repeat this section a few times/*
Then just play an A for two bars with this lead over the top _ _|---17b-15b-14b-r-14b-r---------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------------------|
Back into the "lover.." bit. In the middle there somewhere it drops down to that B type chord, (x2003x) but then drops straight back to the G Then the "Now you know.." bit as above. Then until the end it alternates netween those two G's. (3x0003) amd (320003)
The little run thing is something like this.|------------------------------------------------------------||------------------------------------------------------------||------------------------------------------------------------||------------------------------------------------------------||------2/5---------------------------------------------------||--3h5-------------------------------------------------------|
That is pretty much it...now, I see this as a fairly complete tab except for those lead bits...but most of it is here!! Please send me comments. This wasn't a simple tab because of all the slight variations that I had to tab, so it took me awhile. I hope you appreciate it :) Adam benmo@deakin.edu.au
