Then the lead bit over the first chorus ("Got a machinehead, it's better than the rest" etc.) is like so: |-----------------| |-4h5-5-5-4h5-5-5-| repeat and crescendo until "I walk from my machine..." etc. |-----------------| |-----------------| |-----------------| |-----------------| I think that's it as far as tab goes. The main chord progressions for the verses and choruses are as follows: Verse: C# and A Pre-chorus: ("I walk from my machine..." etc.) F# and A Chorus: ("Got a machinehead, it's better than the rest..") E B C# A I think that's it. If I've missed something and you can't figure it out from what I have here, let me know (by email) and I'll get back to ya'. Questions/comments/CONSTRUCTIVE criticism welcome (by email). Flames intelligently rebuked (if I feel like it). Good Luck! Paul D. (pdmytrewycz@music.transy.edu) Machinehead From BUSH's sixteen stone (c) 1994 Tabbed out by: Bas van Pelt [9250128@bn.fnt.hvu.nl] Okay this is a fairly simple song (like most songs of this album) but it sound really good I tabbed out this song about three months or so but never posted it (I'm lazy) but when i got the version that was on the net i saw that mine was much better :) so i decided to post it!
