Queens of the Stone Age - First It Giveth
Songs for the Deaf
Tuning: C-F-Bb-Eb-Ab-C
by Nick Paliocha
Note: Josh Homme has a very improvisational style compared to most metal bands of today.  I have one or two variations tabbed out, but if you learn the basic riffs for the song, you can make your own small variations and fills.  But I will not waste my time picking out every one of homme's variations.

After four measures do one of the following:

-	Play the same riff with a harmonizer (Whammy pedal or some other thing) set to a Major 3rd or 4 half steps up.
-	Play with two guitarists.  One plays the above riff, the other plays the same thing a Major 3rd or 4 half steps up.
-	Play the same riff except replace each single note with a major triad
For example:
----	    -4-
-5-- becomes -5-
