Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Devil   Staind



Band: Staind
Song: Devil
Album: Chapter V

	Ok, I just bought the album and I really like this song. I was sitting with my acoustic guitar.
	I had it tuned down a half-step because I know Aaron does that. I know Mike has a wierd tuning
	so this probably won't be correct. This is the chords in the song, though. It actually sounds
	like there are only two chords.

Main Guitar Riff: Remember that this just in half-step down.
 Because I'm not an expert at this, please be kind.
 I think this will help people get on the right track, though.
 This riff is in Abm(played as Am with the half-step
down)

It sometimes sounds like this.

|----0----------0----------------|
|-1----1-----0----0--------------|
|-2------2---2------2------------|
|-2----------2-------------------|

The main riff is played for the intro and verse.

Chorus: Ok, the chorus sounds like it is played with Eb and Abm
(played as F and Am with the half-step).
 I'm not sure if Aaron plays anything for this song 
(it sounds like one that he would, though),
 but I think it this would sound good if two acoustic
 guitars or one acoustic and one electric
were playing together.

Possibly one guitar playing this.

  I swear I'm not the devil

Now I know Mike has the wierd tuning, so this is probably wrong,
 but here is an idea for that cool riff during the chorus.
Its a great way of using octaves.

|-10---12-/-14-\-12---10---12-/-14-\-12-\-10-\-9-------|

|-8----10-/-12-\-10---8----10-/-12-\-10-\-8-\--7-------|
|------------------------------------------------------|

That's about it. Please keep in mind the tuning factor.
