Hello, this is pretty much exact tab for this beautiful song off the album Nico:
D D&Dsus4@7thfret Dm@5th&7th&3rdfrets D Dm@7th,5th,&
: E-----2---2---22---7--78-7----55--7-5555-3--3533---2---7---55----> B-----3---3---33---8--88-8----77--7-7777-5--5755---3---8---77--------> G-----2---2---22---7--77-7----66--6-6666-4--4644---2---7---66--------> D-----0---0---00---0--00-0----00--0-0000-0--0000---0---0---00--------> A-----0---0---00---0--00-0----00--0-0000-0--0000---0---0---00--------> E-----0---0---00---0--00-0----00--0-0000-0--0000---0---0---00--------> |______________section1_______________________| |_____section2_>
>-33-55-| >-55-77-| >-44-66-| repeat section 2 once, then you go into the verse >-00-00-| also, section two of the intro is played >-00-00-| legato (longer,slower) >-00-00-| >_______|
(sl between chord names means slide up the hot neck between the chords) verse: Dm@5thfret D Dm@3rdfret Dm@5th fret All that I need is the air that I breathe and all that I D Dm@3rdfret Dm@5thfret D need are all things I don\'t need. And all that really matters is Dm@3rdfret @5th,@3rd,D what matters to me-hee-hee.
Then (immediately):
DslD@7thfret->Dm@5thfret->Dm@3rdfret->Dm@5thfret->Dm@3rdfret->Dsus4->Dstop . . . E-2~7-77-5-3333-5-3-33-322-2-----------> B-3~8-88-7-5555-7-5-55-333-3-----------> (hard, quick,short,fast stop G-2~7-77-6-4444-6-4-44-222-2-----------> here) D-0-0-00-0-0000-0-0-00-000-0-----------> A-0-0-00-0-0000-0-0-00-000-0 <-------> E-0-0-00-0-0000-0-0-00-000-0 ---->
And who are you a like me? (Repeat small tab section above once) Then: Dm@5thfret D Dm@3rdfret Dm@5thfret If I was to smile and I held out my hand, all the nope I need D Dm@3rdfret Dm@5thfret D now you would not understand. Cause you know if I\'m to benefit I\'ll do Dm@3rdfret @5th,@3rd,D everything that I ca-han.
Then (immediately): Do the above little middle tab section once and stop quick at the end.
And who are you a like me?
Then: Do it again!! HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!!!!!!
Bridge: Strumming /= 16th note /\'= staccato 16th note ./ = quarter note

//// /// /// /\' ./ // ///
Repeat this once and then you go into the second verse rhythm:
E--X-x-xxx-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-0-00-0--0--0-| B--X-x-xxx-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-0-00-1--3--3-| G--X-x-xxx-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-0-00-0--0--0-| D--2-2-222-x-2-2-x-x-x-x-2-2-22-2--4--4-| A--0h2-222-0-3-2-x-x-x-x-0h2-22-3--5--5-| E--0-0-000-x-0-0-0-3-2-0-0-0-00-0--0--0-|
Repeat once (you can play the top three strings open on this part if you want or you can play only the A and D strings alternating with a lone Low E string if you want and quickly pick the rhythm) Do whatever the funk you like, the quick picking way is what they do on the record. Everyone needs a little KFC.)
Then: continue this rhythm while you sing the words in the second section. These words are:
It\'ll make you feel good, over my shoulder, it get me up and got me tied down, till I grew old, ah but feeeel meeeeheeee, like you want me too, like you never doooo, But is it just the pains in your head, that are thrilling me?, but I\'ll never smile, like I did that day
I don\'t remember the rest of the lyrics off the top of my head, or the bottom and sides of my head either. But you can get them if you play the song through your stereo and smile. Thisn guitar part goes till the end of the song.

I figured this out originally from memory, so I knew it wasn't quite right. Since this recording I've caught a couple specific places where I'm off. Like that back and forth part after "And who of you are like me" should be G and A bar chords, instead of those weird little chords that don't sound quite right. But I think you can figure it out. :) Brooke (

Strumming the chords is not as helpful as an idea of the melody of the song would be as well.
