Notes...
   It is recommeded that you place a capo on first fret.
   All fret references are exact, not accounting for the capo (ie
   references to first fret are actually played open because of the
   capo).  This is a simplified standard-tuning version, not exactly
   the way Brian and Stefan play it.


=====================================================================
  INTRO RIFF (and verse riff)
=====================================================================

Play this riff far from the bridge using middle (or both) pickup(s).

e |----------------------------------------------|
b |----------------------------------------------|
g |----------------------------------------------|
D |----------------------------------------------|
A |-3---4-------6---4-------3---3h4p3------------|
E |-------------------------------------4--------|


=====================================================================
  VERSE RIFF
=====================================================================

This is the second guitar.  Use back pickup and strum the chords
slowly near the bridge.

e |-4----------------------------------------------------|
b |-4--------------------------9-------------------------|
g |-5--------------------------10------------------------|
D |-6--------------------------10------------------------|
A |-6--------------------------8-------------------------|
E |------------------------------------------------------|


=====================================================================
  CHORUS
=====================================================================

There's a second guitar playing equivalent power chords clean in
the background of this riff.

e |-3---------3-3---3-------3---3---|
b |-4---------4-4---4-------4---4---|
g |-5---------5-5---3-------3---3---|
D |-5---------5-5---1-------1---1---|
A |-3---------3-3---1-------1---1---|
E |---------------------------------|

=====================================================================
  FUNNY NOTE
=====================================================================

At some point, there's a lead bit....... it's pants.  Just dive a
bit and tremolo on the whammy bar.  There's a flange effect on it
too.  It's just one note, so...........  uh, yeah....

e |------------------------------------------
b |------------------------------------------
g |-1-vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv--------------
D |------------------------------------------
A |------------------------------------------
E |------------------------------------------


=====================================================================
  INSTRUMENTAL BLOCK (at the end)
=====================================================================

This is a totally perfect tab of the nice instrumental bit at the
end of the song.  This riff is repeated several times, and starts
off softly strummed and gets a bit harder.  Eventually, there's a
bass line that comes in and is copied on the guitar, but that's up
to you......  it just toys with the chord G#maj and the sustain
notes of chord G#maj etc.

e |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
b |-6---6---6---6---6---6---6---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---1---|
g |-6---6---6---6---6---6---6---6---10--10--10--10--10--10--10--1---|
D |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E |-----------------------------------------------------------------|

e |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
b |-6---6---6---6---6---8---8---1---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---1---|
g |-6---6---6---6---6---6---6---1---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---1---|
D |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E |-----------------------------------------------------------------|


Well that's it for my tab.  It's just a simplified version, but it
should help those multi-wotsit bands who cover allsorts of stuff
and are sick of lugging two guitars around in different tunings,
just coz Placebo can't do the honorable thing and use standard.
I can't judge them...  I myself regularly use and write songs in
Eb tuning, so....  oh well.  Hope this helps you.  Email me
any comments, suggestions, requests, etc.  Thanks!
