The Skeezix Dilemma
 From Tourniquet's :"Pathogenic Ocular Dissonance"

 Words & Music by Ted Kirkpatrick

This is some badass song! For this one, tune your guitars down
one and a half step (!). I've only transcribed part of this song
here. I did some transcriptions of the 'first' intro from memory,
but that turned out quite wrong, and I haven't had the time to
fix it. Also the solo and fade riffs are missing. I will probably
add them later, if I get a positive feedback off this.

I'll start this transcription at the '3rd intro' (The heavy stuff):

C# -----------------------------|
G# -----------------------------|
E  -----------------------------|
B  --2-----2-----2-----2-1-7-5--|
F# --2-----2-----2-----3-2-8-7--|
C# --0-----0-----0--------------|
                       Two guitars

This is the main riff, which is played numerous times during the song,
and is even harmonized during the last verses (can't remember the
harmonization though):
[ Tab from: ]
C# ----------------------------------------------------------------|
G# ----------------------------------------------------------------|
E  ----------------------------------------------------------------|
B  ----------------------------------------------------------------|
F# ------------------7-7-7-7-6-7-6---10-10-10-10-----8-8-8-8-8-8-8-|
C# --0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------------0-------------0-0---------------|

C# --------------------------------------------------------------|
G# --------------------------------------------------------------|
E  --------------------------------------------------------------|
B  --------------------------------------------------------------|
F# ------------------7-7-7-7-6-7-6---5-5-5-5-5-5-----4-4-4-4-4-4-|
C# --0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------------0-------------6-6-------------|

This is the 'between verses'/chorus riff. Between the verses there is
also some guitars playing the melody, trilling the last note:

C# ---------------------------------------------------------------|
G# ---------------------------------------------------------------|
E  ---------------------------------------------------------------|
B  ---------------------------------------------------------------|
F# --2---4-5-3---2-5---3-2---3-2-----2---4-5-3---5-7---5-2---3--2-|
C# --0---2-3-1---0-5---1-0---3-2-----0---2-3-3---5-7---3-0---3--2-|

That's sort of what I've figured out. Please drop me a line if you
would like to see more Tourniquet songs transcribed, as I've figured
out most of 'Test For Leprosy', 'Spectrophobic Dementia' and a bit
of 'Ark Of Suffering' as well. This overlooked band is truly great!
