Abuse Me
--------By Silverchair, Written By Daniel Johns, Tabbed by Abe Gibson
Off of the CD Freak Show, Live Performance, and MTV.
   In Dropped-D like every song of theirs.

I tried many times to figure out this awesome song but I had no luck
for some reason. Finally I saw them live in Seattle, which rocked, and
saw some kind of MTV production that had them in concert. I taped the
MTV thingy and watched it about 20 times to get it right and then I used
my ear, which isn't great, off the CD to get it 100% right. I think it
is pretty accurate. But anyways:

INTRO: I think they're using a phaser.
