   Queens Of The Stone Age - Better Living Through Chemistry Tab    

Tabbed By: Tim Barr
Tuning: CFA#D#GC (that`s two whole steps - anything lighter than 10`s will be way too floppy)
Note: 10, 11, 12 etc is fret 10, 11, 12 etc, not fret 1 followed by fret 0.

Riff 1 - is a descending line with the open F as a pedal note (at least, i think that`s what it`s called)
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|
|---------10-10-9-9----------------------|
|--7-7-7-----------11--11-11--10-10-9-9--|
|-0-0-0--0--0--0-0---00-----00--0--0-0-0-|
|----------------------------------------|

|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|
|--------10-10-9-9------12-121212----------------|
|-7---77-----------11-------------10-10-12-12/14-|
|--0-0--0--0--0-0----0-0---------0--0--0---------|
|------------------------------------------------|
that`s the basic pattern. Josh doesn`t stick rigidly to this, so feel free to embellish

Riff 2 ("There`s no one here...")
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-7-5-7-9-7-5-4-5-7-5-7-9-7-5-4-5-7-5-7-9-7-5-4-5-7-5-4-2-4-2-4-5-7-|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

Riff 3 ("ah...")
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------9999-9999-|
|--10101010-10101010-9999-9999-12121212-12121212-----------|
|-0--------0--------0----0----0--------0--------0----0-----|
|----------------------------------------------------------|
after repeating this a few times he plays a new riff:
|--------------------------8h12-|
|-----------------------10------|
|----------------------9--------|
|----------10--10-10h12---------|
|-12p10h12---12-----------------|
|-------------------------------|
and then things descend into improvised bends and whatnot, around the 12th fret
