Title:  Tension Head
Artist: Queens of the Stone Age
Album:  Rated R

Tabbed by Unisonbender 

tuning - C F Bb Eb G C

There are up to 3 guitars playing at once at certain points in this song, look at 
the left of each bar below and if you see something like this:

||-------|
||-------|
||-------|
||-------|
||-5-----|
||-3-----|
||
||-9-8~--|
||-------|
||-------|
||-------|
||-------|
||-------|

it means there are two guitars playing at this point (notice how the two bars above
are connected by the "||")

Other playing techniques in tab are below:

b - bend string up
~ - vibrato
/ - slide up
 - slide down

there is also some tremolo picking in this tab, here's an example:

|-18(trem pick)------------(18)-|

it means pick the note as rapidly and continuously as possible until you see 
the note again in brackets.
