Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Evil Eye   Fu Manchu

Tabbed by John H 15/4/98 (

Fu Manchu are a riff-based band, so I'll give you the riffs and lyrics
and let you work out the order for yourself (there really is no point
wet nursing you through the song verbatim as it repeats so much)

The key to playing these tracks live is the density and volume-
at least it was when they played Nottingham the other week- if you're
playing solo get your rhythm humbuckers balanced on maximum, don't use
single-coil pickups if you have them- urgh! ;-)

If there are two of you, guitarist 1 should follow the above setting,
but turn up your input volume so it distorts it a little too much for
the picking section, guitarist 2 should use a crisper treble setting to
create that dense, dirgy feel

Lyrics (Not official)


 Since I was before, with an evil grin
 Better break yourself, straight away I'll win
 Cold power slide, seperates them all
 Never thought you'd brake, unapproachable


 Evil eye has shaped his plan, we're racing on (x2)


 Puts to the floor, half-way through the turn
 As we ride up high, do a stop and burn
 Wheels of his feet, hits a back-street wall
 Evil eye has signalled, unapproachable


 Evil eye has shaped his plan, we're racing on (x2)


 Evil eye will fall (x3)


 Evil eye

             then don't tell me about it- just don't use it)
