Bittersweet Tab

standard tuning

i saw these guys live and they began this with an introduction--the intro to Stairway to Heaven.

C*, D*, etc are power chords played around the A string and letting
the high b and e strings ring.  rhythm guitar plays these.

the bass part pretty much just plays the root note of whatever chord
is being played, with a few hit-ons and such to make it interesting.

INTRO:
e|-x--x--------------|-------------|-------------|----------------|-----
B|-x--x--------------|-------------|-------------|----------------|-----
G|-16-16-(continue top line two frets above bottom line--like a power chord w/o middle string)
D|-x--x--------------|-------------|-------------|----------------|-----
A|-14-14-14-15-14-17-|-17-15-15-14-|-14-14-15-14-|-12-10-10-12-10-|-----
E|-x--x--------------|-------------|-------------|----------------|-----
   C* 		       D*            E*            D*

Seven sins of wantonness and everything that's good is gone
sell it all for glory from the peers
silicone priestess scratch the back and twist the knife to bone
kick against the pricks and scrape the shine

I'm the enemy in the enemy now

CHORUS (verse/chorus riff)
	swallowed the pill

	all these things I carry now

CHORUS part 2 (bridge riff)
	in this bittersweet
	in this bittersweet now

back to intro to verse
then verse

Try to hold the world there sinking swimming in a paper cup
try to own the one beneath the skin
held up to the flames till singing skin begins to draw and tuck
never told there's not a chance to live

BRIDGE
	what wouldn't be; couldn't be now

CHORUS-CHORUS part 2

E5   E5           G5   G5  C5~          B5~ 
everything that's breaking dow-ow-ow-ow-own, hey-ey-yeah-ah

CHORUS-CHORUS part 2
CHORUS
LAST CHORUS PART 2:					      E5
in this bittersweet, in this bittersweet! in this bittersweet now.

my band played this and it sounded great, because it's a kickass song.
we had the lead do the intro against the rhythm guitar, and they both played
the verses and choruses.  during the chorus, the lead fast-strummed sixteenth
notes, to make that brushing sort of sound that's on the CD during the chorus, 
that sort of record-spinning sound.  it sounded great. . . .Fuel rules.
