Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: Another good song. Pretty straight-forward rock n¥ roll with some
Spanish/Arabian flavors thrown in for good measure. Some decent fills too.
During the solo there is a D-note that is manipulated by turning on a meandistorsion while flicking the wah-wah pedal.

Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t^   = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\)  = Dive w\bar
(/)  = Release w\bar
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum

[Rhy. Fig 2]
You better listen up, since you screwed me you¥ve been on my mind
Yeah, til the day we met...I was cruisin, I was doing fine
But now my world¥s gone crazy and I think about you all the time

[Rhy. Fig 3]
I¥m gonna tell it to you baby
It ain¥t like it was
There¥ll be no ifs, ands or maybes
Only justice because...

[Rhy. Fig 1a and 1b]
Hey, baby
(I...got an angry soul - I got a broken home)
I¥m gonna stick it in your heart of chrome
(I got no self-control - you gotta a heart of chrome)
Yeah, sugar
(And now you¥re gonna see - that since you messed with me)
I¥m gonna stick it in your heart of chrome
(You¥ll pay eternally - for your heart of chrome)
Your heart of chrome

[Rhy. Fig 2 with Riff 1]Yeah, you really made a fool out of me
Everybody knew you used me, but I was just too blind to see
You taped our sexy conversations and you sold them to the BBC

[Rhy. Fig 3 with Riff 2]You told me people can¥t be trusted
You gotta watch the things they do
But if you still believe in justice
I¥m gonna give it to you...give it to you, ooh

[Rhy. Fig 1a and 1b]
Hey, baby
(I...got an angry soul - I got a broken home)
I¥m gonna stick it in your heart of chrome
(I got no self-control - you gotta a heart of chrome)
Yeah, sugar
(And now you¥re gonna see - that since you messed with me)
I¥m gonna stick it in your heart of chrome
(You¥ll pay eternally - for your heart of chrome)
Your heart of chrome

[Rhy. Fig 4a and 4b]

[Solo over Rhy. Fig 5]
[Rhy. Fig 6]
You told me lies about all that you feel
I realize now that nothing was real
You took everything you could beg, borrow, steal

[Rhy. Fig 7 with Riff 3]
[Rhy. Fig 1a and 1b with Riff 4]Hey, baby
(I...got an angry soul - I got a broken home)
I¥m gonna stick it in your heart of chrome

Yeah, sugar
(And now you¥re gonna see - that since you messed with me)
I¥m gonna stick it in your heart of chrome
