My Vitriol - Ode To The Red Queen
tabbed by Fibreman
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

standard Tuning 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To make it sound authentic you will need -

Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble
Digitech Whammy
Any Boss Delay
Humbucker loaded guitar w/bolt on neck. 
Marshall or similar valve amp, preferably with fx loop.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Effects settings 

Chorus settings 
level 9 / rate 3.5 / depth 6 / filter low 1 / filter high 6

Delay settings 
level 9 / f.back 3 / time 690ms approx

Whammy set to +2 semitones

FX Mix on Marshall JCM2000 to full 

Use medium overdrive for rhythm parts, full overdrive for lead parts, using the guitar to back 
off the gain on the verse sections.
The chorus should sound tastefully over the top, don`t worry about getting the delay time 
absolutely spot on, it`s just there to fill out the mix and add atmospherics.

Intro - Rhythm Guitar

 E, F#, E 

 E, F#, E, F#, B5 x2

If you listen carefully you will notice the time signature switches between 7/8 and 4/4. 
Smart, hey.  The F# in the intro is hit by slowly drifting the whammy +2 semitones, 
although if you`re minus a whammy just drift your fingers into F# in the same fashion.  
Those with Floyd Rose trems might fancy their chances doing it their way. At least, until 
a string breaks.  There is something going on with the B5 chord as well, although that 
sounds like it drops just a touch, or theres a G hit on the E string on the second bar or 
something.  Might just be the bass.

Sound-wise, it`s an all effects on moment.

Intro - Lead Guitar

E---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the notes in brackets gradually bend up on the 16th fret, and gradually bend down on the 
15th.  Listen to the CD and you`ll get the idea, it`s very Joey Santiago.  This is all at 
full gain, whatever your amp classes as full gain.  If your planning on playing this live 
with a full band it might be worth backing off the gain and just raising your volume a 
little to cut through the mix.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Verses

EM7, Ebm, EM7, BM7 x2

Drop the volume back on your guitar to about halfway.  If the gain is just right on your amp 
it should sparkle and jangle, with just the tiniest hint of crunch. As you hit the last BM7, 
pull it back up to full and hit the strings harder to taste.  You can lose the whammy for this, 
the chorus and the delay should be more apparent when you drop the volume back.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chorus - Rhythm part

C#m, C#sus2, C#m, C#sus2, E
C#m, C#sus2, C#m, C#sus2, E, Em

Full gain, all effects minus the whammy.  Listen carefully to the CD for the C#m/Csus2 change, 
it`s quite subtle, if only because the lead part is doing something very similar, melodically 
speaking.  If the chorus and the delay are set just right, this bit sounds awesome.

Chorus - Lead part

B------------------------------------------

just keep playing this right through the chorus, except for the Em chord.  If somebody in a 
band is looking for easy lead stuff look no further than this song, it really doesn`t get easier 
than this....unless you`re planning to cover Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  Saying that though, 
there are some interesting harmonics going on with the lead guitar, which for the most part make 
the lead guitar sound like it`s caught in a very rock`n`roll wind tunnel.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Middle 8 - Rhythm part

B5, E, BM7, E, Em x2

Tonally the rhythm part is the same as the chorus.

Run through this twice, remembering to let the notes ring out in a flowing way. Whoop.  Again, 
mucho easy, exactly the same sound as the chorus and intro parts, aside from what sounds like a 
very slow phaser pedal running through it, although this could be the digitech whammy/wah.
