Life Is Peachy Tab Tab

   
Album: Life is Peachy
Artist: Korn
I'm tabbing out this CD a. because its my favorite 
b. because its the most creative CD Korn has ever made
c. because no one who submits tabs to this site gets anything right
hey that last one rhymed. 
\        \\\\\         \    \  ///// //// /// // /
I have the tab book but for those of you who are in on it those things
are done by computers (the mistakes they have in them are so obviously
mechanical theres no way a human could've made them) So some of the 
tabs will be from the book with my corrections

I'm really detailed; its just the way i am. I want there to be NO
question about how to play these songs so on the weird parts (and 
there are plenty of those when you're playing korn) i tell you exactly
how to play them. So whine all you want about me talking to much, you
will thank me when you hook everything up and play these songs perfect

Korn plays 7-strings tuned down 1 step on just about every song they
have written, including all the songs on Life is Peachy.

Twist: simple quirky quick song in terms of guitar, easy. One guitar 
needs a whammy bar and a whammy pedal. Use distortion (if you really 
wanna know, the most korny distortion i've been able to find a mesa
recifier. its on the digitech RP200A which is what i use most of the 
time, if you can find it consider yourself lucky cause its the closest
thing to that grungy, grating, dirty, almost flatulent distortion that
korn is so fond of especially on this album.

Chi: bad ass song here. very creative as they use some sort of 
feedback effect on their guitars in the verse and bridge. The tab book
calls it microphonic feedback arranged for as harmonics. It doesnt 
sound perfect probably cause i don't have the right effects but its 
the closest ive heard, you just have to practice hitting the harmonics
right especially in the bridge. You need two guitars with just plain 
old distortion and preferably single coil pickups

Intro:

The verse has a different ending each of the 3 times its played
here they are  6

               4
first verse  second verse  third verse-heavy vibrato here; basically
                           just wiggle your hand up the neck, but do
                           it fast!

interlude-drums and bass here, let the strings ring and just let your
guitar hang, and if you have the single coil pickups and a big enough
amp you should get the fuzzy sound.
Bridge: one of the coolest riffs ive heard from korn. this riff sounds
like munky and head are slicing their strings up with kitchen knives.
HEAVY distortion
part 1 the first chord and the harmonic in each loop come AFTER 
jonathan screams, not right on top of it. remember that or you'll 
screw up the beat. and the harmonics: the trick is to get your finger
off the string as fast as you can, or else the harmonic wont ring.

Part 2: piece of cake compared to part 1. much easier on the fingers.
Gtr 1:
 pick slide (scrape strings down to the neck and then pull off to the
power chord; the A5 powerchord barely sounds hammer on to A#5 quickly)
G-x/---2h3--x/---2h3--x/---2h3----2----- repeat

Gtr 2: plays the same thing only every other pick slide is an A5 chord

quiet part after bridge:

chorus is played a buncha times then you have the Outro:

Lost: bad-ass extremely underrated song. come to think of it every song
on Life is Peachy has never gotten its due except for A.D.I.D.A.S. the
tab book was so jacked it tabbed the chorus as only having 1 gtr part.
you need a swell effect or a guitar with a volume knob really close
to the strings, a chorus & phaser effects, distortion, and of course 2
geetars
Intro: 4 evenly spaced fade-ins, clean with chorus effect.
C-0- (4 bars)
G-4-

Chorus:
Gtr 1
C---------------------0- repeat however many times
G---------------------4-
D-5/4-4-4/3-3-5/4-4/3---
A-3/2-2-2/1-1-3/2-2/1---
i always use upward slashes even when the slide is downward cause some
thing always keeps the downward slashes from appearing when the tab is
posted. just thought i'd let you know its stupid i know but oh well.
Gtr 2 (w/ a phaser, palm mute throughout) You have to play this FAST.
G-5--5-4--4-3--5-4-3-3-4^- repeat however many times
D-5--5-4--4-3--5-4-3-3----
A-3--3-2--2-1--3-2-1-1----    
Verse: same as the intro only with distortion. the fade-ins are spaced
unevenly, and they last for varying amounts of time, plus the guitars
pan (fade from left to right) a lot so it would be a pain to tab out.
just listen to the song though and its easy.
PreBridge: guitar 1 only: (use up strokes and down stokes + down ^ up)
remember up means towards you.
  ^ +  +  + ^ +  +  + +   
C-----------------------0-
G-4-4--4--4-4-4--4--4-4-4-
D-3-3--3--3-3-3--3--3-3-3-
gtr1s part continues and gtr2 comes in w/ this for next 3 bars
Low
D-3---------3---------3---
A---2--2--2---2--2--2---2-
now both guitars play this:
Low              *    
A-2-3--3--3-2-3--3--3-3-2-
* right here every other time gtr 2 plays open 7th string and goes
up to the 19th fret high D and whacks it a little and then continues

song continues with a verse & another chorus then you have the outro
which is a variation of the chorus; both guitars play this:
Low
D-5/4-4-4/3-3-5/4-4/3-4- repeat however many times 
A-3/2-2-2/1-1-3/2-2/1-2-

Swallow: yes another underated song. No one gets it right; the chorus
is single notes not power chords and its not the same as the intro...
and i could go on forever. you need a chorus effect, a pitch effect 
with an expression pedal, reverb and... thats it... well distortion 

Intro: clean! get ready to give your weak pinky finger a workout here.
gtr1 only:                **
G-4-------4---------------------- repeat
D--------------------------------
A---2-1-2---2-1-2--2-3-2-1-2-2-2-
gtr1 continues this riff with distortion and guitar2 plays this.
this is tricky. set your pitch effect so what you play is doubled an
octave higher. have it set there at the start of each bar and slowly
release the pedal so when you get to the * you have decended to the 
normal pitch
Low              *        **
A-2-2-1-2-2-2-1-2--2-3-2-1-2-2-2- repeat however many times
** stop here when jon exhales

Verse guitar 1 (clean with chorus and reverb)
 pick this chord 4 times really fast then stop at the end of each bar
A-15-
F-13-
C-12-
G-11-
Verse gtr 2 (dist)
like gtr1s part pick the chord 4 times really fast. gtr2 should be 
silent when gtr1s reverb is still sounding the chord.
A-/15-------15-
F-----------13-
C-----0--12-12-
Chorus (variation of the intro, simpler, easier on the fingers. both
geetars play the same thing here too.)

another verse and then a drawn out chorus. then the outro which is a
bunch of decending pick scrapes on the high D string. figure it out
yourself i couldn't cause my gtr only has 22 frets and the tab book
transcribed the song in a jacked up tuning.

Porno Creep: korns pretty much instrumental song. would take me
forever to tab out (i look at the tab book, which by the way, as far
as i can tell is right with this song and all i see is this blur of
14's and 12's and 15's and x's on the highest 4 strings.) it really 
would take me about a day to tab out. just get the tab book if you 
really wanna play it (its not THAT good of a song. creative though)

Good God: my favorite korn song of all time. and of course im mad 
because no one gets this song right. The chorus is never tabed right
and the intro/prechorus is NOT TWO GTR PARTS. both guitars are playing
the same thing. yes its hard, but its ridiculously fun to play once 
you get used to going from one end of the neck to the other in about
1/2 a second. you need just good old heavy distortion for this crazy 
song. and some fast reflexes.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/k/korn/life_is_peachy_tab_tab.html ]
the infamous Intro:
this can take hours of practice to get right, at least if you are trying
to play along w/ the song get away from that firstfret after you hit
it as fast as you can... and despite what other tabs say the low 
notes are not power chords. if they were then you WOULD need
two guitars to play it. see how one screw up leads to another?

D-19-----20-- repeat. that 19th fret note is played only that first

A----0-0-----

Verse: The verse of this song is not much easier than the intro.
you dont have to go all the way to the 20th fret, but to the 15th.
but you do have to use powerchords on the heavy parts. there is a rest
between the high and low parts but you will still need to play this as
fast as you can. also, the tab book says to use harmonics, and i hate
to say it but its right. however although you move around less with 
the harmonics it is extremely difficult to finger them and play them
and get them to sound right in the short amount of time you have. so
i play the notes up on the high strings instead. its more moving 
around and you dont get the discordancy you do with the harmonics but
beggars cant be choosers, and not all of us here are munky or head.

Chorus: this isnt a hard riff, a break for your hands. its a hard riff
to transcribe though judging by all the bogusly wrong tabs there are.
This is, for the record, the one and only time in the song where head
and munky play different stuff.

belief, just really fast picking. Turn your volume knob down about 
halfway to make it sound just a little cleaner)
D-5-/7///-

play this each bar and at the end of the chorus play this: 
(volume back up)tremolo picking throughout

PostChorus/Outro
Easy riff:
G-2--8---6--5--4-3---- repeat however many times
D-2--8---6--5--4-3----
A-0--6---4--3--2-1-0--

Interlude: this song has probably made you break a serious sweat by 
now so the interlude is a break for the guitars, just listen to the
bass and drums and jon's whispering-turned-screaming and wait for the
next riff, which, to your relief, is easy:
Bridge: on deadened notes, keep the pressure light so that some of the
notes and random harmonics sound:
D-----x------------
A-----x------------
F-----x------------
C-----x------------
G-3-2-x-2--2-2-3-2-
D-3-2---2--2-2-3-2-
A-1-0---0--0-0-1-0- repeat however many times. 

Mr. Rogers: Underrated song even by the band themselves, who claim its
a horrible song for a live show. Granted its a little weird but the
heavier parts of the song are very fun. 
Warning: This is the first song where I'm not sure about the effects.
Tab books are horrible about telling you what effects the band is 
using if they tell you at all (Korn is known for their love of guitar
effects and in the untouchables tab book there is no indication of any
effects used) Especially in this tab book they talk about some effects
I've never heard of. You need a Leslie effect whatever that is. I've
never seen or had one, so all i can do is tell you the good substitute
You need distortion obviously and if you don't have this Leslie thing
then you need some wah, chorus, and flanger.

Intro: Gtr1 only
P.M. Throughout

A-0---0-0---0-0---0---0-0---0-0---0---0-0---0-0---0---0-0---0-0---0-
repeat that exact thing twice. then both guitars play this:
Low
A-1--1--1-
(this is mind blowingly heavy, its not power chords, way to heavy for
that, and these are A#s they're just played with break-your-string 
force and more distortion than um... i dunno. Just play this song with
some new strings.
The first part repeats once, then the heavy part, then the first part,
then the heavy part but the note is only played twice.
Prechorus: controversial riff here. The tab book insists its only one
guitar part but i beg to differ. They are both playing the same notes,
but the way i hear it guitar 2 is using a chorus effect on the chords,
and may also be scraping the strings a little rather than picking them
* Chorus on, + Chorus off (guitar 2 only)

A-------------------------7-----6-----------------6-6p0-0-
F-4-------------------------------------------------------

Chorus: Fun riff for both guitars but guitar 2 needs that silly Leslie
thingy. So if you don't have that like me, use wah (keep pedal toe up)
along with a chorus pedal and do some tremolo picking. If you want to
spice things up a little you can wah-wah a little on the higher parts.
An alternate way in which you don't need to tremolo pick is the wah 
with a very fast flanger (phaser might also work.) If you have a 
vibrato bar you could ride that thing the whole time with tremolo
picking and not have to use any effects. Or you can just wiggle your
fingers a whole lot like me. Those are the best substitutes to this
Leslie thing, so use whichever you like the sound of the most.

Gtr1: lucky, heavy riffin rhythm guitarists get a fun simple 
effect-less riff:

As a testament to the horrible mistakes tab books make, get this:
For those of you who have heard this song, the tab book says exactly
this: "Ad lib. lyrics throughout Verse" And then earlier with twist
the book actually had tried to transcribe Jon's scat, poorly at that.
That should just about say it all.

Verse-not me the tab book or anyone else knows just how to play this
riff. The tab book looks right but the harmonics are very hard to find
and hit accurately enough for them to sound right. Plus you need a 
very specific effect, i read somewhere on some korn website that munky
(who uses the jacked up effect) used some sort of crazy rare wah pedal
for this riff that he never used. I'm not sure what head plays, the
tab book only gives one guitar part where their are two. I think head
just plays with distortion. I happened to get lucky and found a 
setting on my digitech stereo flanger pedal that sounds just about
identical to whatever munky is using here. i forgot what setting it is
but if you have this pedal (you cant miss it if you want to go get it:
it says digitech stereo flanger, has four knobs, and its violet
purple) the setting i found gives your higher notes a highly 
discordant scream/droning sound to them and when you hit low notes it
sounds like your guitar is saying "OW!" so basically look for an
effect that makes your guitar sound like it is in pain and you're good
to go :D
Munky plays this

a few weeks I'll send the rest; No Place to Hide - Kill You (tracks 
9-14). Until then enjoy and tear up those guitars!
