Artist: Marilyn Manson
Song: Personal Jesus


I would say that I'm 100% sure that this is correct. 50% of it is my own work, while
the other 45% goes to someone I know and about 5% I found on the internet (hope the
person doesn't mind, but I did only used a little bit, most of it was the same as what
I had anyway)
But anyway here it is so enjoy!

Tuning: Drop D

Intro:
-----------------------------------R
-----------------------------------E
---------11----------------11------P till the verse
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-E
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-A
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-T

there is another little guitar part that guitar 2 plays right after the intro going
into the verse but i havn't tabbed it(sorry)

Verse:
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------| it's actually exactly the same as the
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-| intro, but I thought i'd put the verse
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-| down seperatly anyway
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

Then theres like a little fill later half way through the verse when he sings: "Someone
who cares"
------------------------------------|
------------------------------------|
--------11--------------------------|
-9-12-9-11-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
-9-12-9--9-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
-9-12-9----12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|

Then continue playing the verse:
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------|
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-| 
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

end of the verse:
------------------------------------|
------------------------------------|
--------11--------------------------|
-9-12-9-11-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
-9-12-9--9-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
-9-12-9----12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|

Bridge:
"Feeling unknown and you're all alone..."
-----------------------------------------|
-7-----7-----10-----15-----12------14----|
-X-----X-----X-------X------X-------X----|
-4-----4-----7------12------9------11----|
-----------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------|

Then after he sings
"I'll make you a believer" theres another little fill that guitar2 plays:

--------|
--------|
--11~~~-| just hold the note for
--------| like 2 seconds.
--------|
--------|

While guitar 1 just goes on playing the main riff (intro/verse):
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------|
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

New verse:
"Take second best,put me to the test"
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------|
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

First guitar plays main riff:
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------|
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

while guitar 2 plays the little fill:
--------|
--------|
--11~~~-|
--------|
--------|

Chorus:
"reach out and touch faith"
--------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------|
-----------------11-------------11----|
-6----5----4-7-4-11--7-4--4-7-4-11--7-|
-6----5----4-7-4--9--7-4--4-7-4--9--7-|
-6----5----4-7-4-----7-4--4-7-4-----7-|

Verse:
"Your own personal Jesus"
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------|
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

then again half way through the verse play:
"someone who cares..."
------------------------------------|
------------------------------------|
--------11--------------------------|
-9-12-9-11-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
-9-12-9--9-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
-9-12-9----12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|

then carry on playing this:
"your own, personal Jesus.."
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------|
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|


during the verse guitar2 plays the little fill again:
--------|
--------|
--11~~~-|
--------|
--------|

"Someone to hear your prayers"
-----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------|
---------11----------------11------|
--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

Chorus:
"reach out and touch faith"
--------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------|
-----------------11-------------11----|
-6----5----4-7-4-11--7-4--4-7-4-11--7-|
-6----5----4-7-4--9--7-4--4-7-4--9--7-|
-6----5----4-7-4-----7-4--4-7-4-----7-|

then on the drum beat:
---------------R
---------------E
---------------P strum the same as
-XXX-XXX-XXX-X-E drum rhythm
