                                       ^ This is actually played by a 2nd
                                       guitar doing the top part of riff
                                       3... but with some practice, it
                                       can sound pretty good with just
                                       one guitar


HAPPINESS IN SLAVERY:

distorted synth & drum sounds here...

(:32) Main bass riff (I think, someone help me with this):
G------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--------------------------1---------------------------------------------|
E--0--1-1-1--4---0--1h2p1-----2------------------------------------------|
             ^slide down

(:48) Guitar riff 1:
E--------------------------|
B--------------------------|
G--------------------------|
D--------------------------|
A---3-----4---3------------|
E---1-----2---1------------|


(1:08) Guitar riff 2, very fast:
E------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--3--3--3--4--4--5--5--5--6--6--6--7--7--8--8---------------------------|
E--1--1--1--2--2--3--3--3--4--4--4--5--5--6--6---------------------------|
muted, first time thru pick only E string, the rest pick chords.

then bass line for a couple of chorus: (don't open your eyes...)

(1:52) Guitar riff 3
smoothly:
E--------------------------|
B--------------------------|
G------------------5^------|<-micro-bend up 1/2 fret or so to give
D---3h4p3---3h4p3----4-----|   the right sound.
A--------------------------|
E--------------------------|

(3:11) harmonics in the bass riff:

(3:28) back to riff 1.
(3:44) 2nd guitar plays figure 3.

outro:
E--------------------------|
B-------6------------------|
G---5---3---6^^5-----------|
D---3-------4^^3-----------|
A-----------slide----------|
E--------------------------|
        ^3-fret power chord.
===========================================================================

help me i am in hell  -trent reznor

   (transcribed out by Elissa Feit)

    1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and    1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and
E---------------------------|--------------------------|
B---------------------------|-----------9--------------|
G---------------------------|--7-----7-----------------|
D---9--9--9--10-10-10-10-10-|--X--10-X--X--X--X--X--X--|
A---7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|
E---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|

The "X" signifies the muting/dampening of the string.

Suggestions: play the 7 on A with your index finger. Play the 9 on D with
your 4th (out of 5) finger. Play the 10 on D with your pinky. Play the 7 on
G with your 3rd finger and leave it there - don't lift it for the remainder
of the measure. Play the 10 on A with the 4th, play the 9 on B also with
the 4th and hold it there to ring out for the rest of the measure.
Keep the E and A string as a steady drone.

    1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and    1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and
E---------------------------|--------------------------|
B---------------------------|--------------------------|
G---------------------------|-----------------7--------|
D---9--9--9--10-10-10-10-10-|--7--7--7--6-----6--------|
A---7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|
E---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|

Play all 4 measures over and over, etc...

Suggestions: same fingering for the third measure as the first.  I
find it easiest to play the 7-7 in the fourth measure with my 3rd and
4th fingers. Then when I hit the 6 on D, I can use my index finger
without lifting my third finger up.  Let the first 6 on D ring for
that extra eighth note.  Let the 7 on G ring for the remainder of the
measure.

Here are some corrections...I think they sound better than what you had
previously posted here.

PINION
I have no idea how this one got screwed up.
1:
2:
3:
4: 3   4   5   6   3   4   5   6
5: 3   4   5   6   3   4   5   6  6 4
6: 1   2   3   4   1   2   3   4
Repeat that 8 times getting louder each time.


WISH
This one was pretty good, except you forgot this:
1:
2:
3: 12 10 12 13 12         12 10 12 13 12        12 10 12 13 12       10~~~~
4:                10 12                  10 12                 10 12
5:
6:
A second guitar plays that twice during the outro


HAPPINESS IN SLAVERY
What you had was actually a pretty good tabbing of this song. The only
thing is you tabbed it a half step lower than it is on the CD. To avoid any
confusion, I'm tabbing my correction that way too.
The guitar riff 3 actually goes like this:
1:                  )
2:                 5  4
3:
4: 3^4^3~~~~ 3^4^3
5:
6:
The main bass riff sound wrong, but I don't own a bass so maybe somone else
out there could fix it...


GAVE UP
Why didn't you post it? It goes something like this:
1:
2:
3:       2  4       5 4 2
4: 2  4  2  4  4    5 4 2 4
5: 2  4  0  2  4    3 2 0 4
6: 0  2        2          2

The second verse is E5 - F#5 at the 7th and 9th fret (I think). I would
post the synth solo after the first chorus but I'm not bored enough to try
and figure it out. Can anyone else out there tab it?
