Blame, Etc.
by The Afghan Whigs
from the album Black Love
Tab by: R. Flahive
This is a really great song, and it's not too hard to play. Use a wah.
Listen to the cd to get the wah effects down.
 Intro: A---2---0h2-0h2--0-----0h2-0----------------------|
 E-----------------------------3--2--0--0-2-3-2-0--| x4

Follow this pattern during the verse:
(B5) x x x | x x x A5|B5 x x x | x x x D5\|B5...
1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1...etc.
Use the wah with the mutes. Follow the guitar pattern on
the cd or come up with your own funky rythyms.
[D5] [B5] My lust it ties me up in chains
[A5] [B5] My skin catches fire at the mention of your name
[D5] [B5] No matter what I tried 2 do
[A5] [B5] I could not lose it
[D5] [B5] Now I know my heart is being used
[A5] [B5] But what I'm not allowed to have I never could refuse
[D5] [B5] No matter what I tried 2 do
[A5] [B5] I stood accused
[F]I..... r[C]eply..... that I don'[Bm]t believe
I'm ev[A]er gonna d[F]ie..... I do[C]n't
Do u[D]?
Blam[Bm]e, deny, [A]betray, di[G]vide[A]
A li[Bm]e, the t[A]ruth, which one sh[G]all I use?[A]
Whatcha gonna do? I know[Bm] [A]
Whatcha gonna do? I know, I kn[G]ow, I know[A]
(note: 1st guitar solos over the chorus. 2nd sticks to the chords.)
VERSE 2 (same as verse 1):
Your sanctimony is showing my dear
The acrimony hangs in the air
Beware of who u trust in this world
Beware the lies about 2 unfurl
INTERLUDE (same as above, repeated twice):
I..... reply..... that I don't believe
I'm ever gonna die..... I don't
Do u?
U..... were blind..... but u are not
Alone in this as I..... was once
Like u
CHORUS (same as before): Blame, etc.
