White Stripes - I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself



Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)

NOTE:  This is a very simple song, sort of a classic rock
sound overall.  Though the song actually has three guitars,
it can easily be played with just one, as long as you own
a distortion pedal of some sort.  In the middle of the chorus
there's a part which may seem a bit confusing.  In this part
Jack White yells "Sweet. - Love. - " and there is some feedback,
and it generally sounds very rough but cool.  To get that feedback
and that sound you have to have a ton of distortion so that when you
lift your finger up from that Fsus4, there's a ringing 
which will create the effect Jack uses in this song.  The lifting
is shown by the pull off in the tab.  Enjoy!

Legend:

x - mute
~ - vibrato
Pm - Palm mute
p - pull off
(#.#) - harmonic 
^ - bend
