--PART.BOUNDARY.902.15212.nyongwa.montreal.qc.ca.782596268.1-- From: Paul D "Vasoline" by Stone Temple Pilots First, there's a fade-in with feedback (1) which is soon doubled by a guitar doing hammer-ons from A to Bb (2) and another guitar does upstrokes on a really weird chord (see "bridge" section WAY below) then there's a little descending thing (3) right before you go into the main riff...

Lyrics: One time a thing occurred to me What's real and what's for sale Blew a kiss and tried to take it home. (CHORUS: Isn't you, isn't me Search for things that you can't see. Goin't blind, out of reach Somewhere in the Vasoline.) Two times and it has rendered me Punch drunk and without bail Think I'd be safer all alone. Flies in the vasoline we are Sometimes it blows my mind Keep getting stuck here all the time. (Chorus) (Bridge: You'll see the look And you'll see the lies. You'll eat the lies And you will...) (solo) Flies in the vasoline we are Sometimes it blows my mind Keep getting stuck here all the time. (chorus) That's "Vasoline" in a nutshell. If you need the solo, email me and be REAL nice and I'll tab it for ya'. Corrections/comments/augmentations welcome (by email only) Good luck! Paul D. (s3bz@music.transy.edu) --------- From: S3BZ@MUSIC.TRANSY.EDU (Paul D) TAB: "Vasoline" by STP (solo) Okay, I've gotten enough "nice" requests for the solo to this song ever since I posted the tab a couple of weeks ago. Honestly though, I think that anyone with a little lead knowledge could come up with a better solo. In my opinion, this is not the best lead work I've ever seen (like much of DeLeo's lead stuff). DeLeo is a good riffster but not much of a solo-er. But here it is, as best as I could make it out (it's basically in G):

Oh yeah, and someone sent me a suggestion that makes quite a bit of sense. Instead of playing that fucked up chord that I had in my original tab (during the intro and bridge) try this:
E---0---B---3---G---3---D---3---A---0---E-------
Whoever it was said it sounds pretty much the same. (Thanks to whoever you are.) At any rate, it's MUCH easier to play. Later, Paul D. (s3bz@music.transy.edu)
