Little Things  Bush

Transcribed by: Michael R Oliver (
There is basically one chord progression for the entire song.
these are the four chords basically used for little things.
 A |-----| F |-----| C |-----| D |-----|
 |-----| |-----| |-----| |-----|
 |-----| |--2--| |--5--| |--7--|
 |--7--| |--3--| |--5--| |--7--|
 |--7--| |--3--| |--3--| |--5--|
 |--5--| |--1--| |-----| |-----|

the progression just is A-F-C-D through the entire song.
This is played in the beginning, the chorus and maybe (i'm not sure) at
some other points in the song.
h=hammer on note
p=pull of note
Some other times in the song, he picks out the chords:
 E |-------------------------------------|
 B |-------------------------------------| (or something like that)
 G |------2---------------5--------7-----|
 D |----2---2-----3-----5---5----7---7---|
 A |--0---------3---3-3-------3s5--------|
 E |----------1--------------------------|

when he plays this live, he picks out the open version of the chords,
but this has the same notes and is correct
this part comes in at about 1.31 minutes
 E |---------------------------------------------|
 B |--------8---10-8-----8-----------------------| (it's late, i'm tired,
 G |--7h9-7---7------9-7----7-9-7-5-7-5-4-5-4-2--| here is all i could
 D |---------------------------------------------| come up with)
 A |---------------------------------------------|
 E |---------------------------------------------|

this little thingy comes in every once is a while, at .44 seconds,
1.11 minutes, 2.01 seconds, and maybe in some other spots.
 E |----------|
 B |----------|

G |--7s9-7v--|
 D |----------|
 A |----------|
 E |----------|

***there is also some other solo parts that are more diffcult and longer,
if you really need them (and i mean that you are playing a club and need
them to make the song to sound almost perfect) then e-mail me
( and ask really nicely and I will tab them out and
personally e-mail them to you. Right now i have no time
p.s. if you need them just to play by yourself in the basement, then
please don't ask me,
Bass guitar
this is the bass part that is played during the verses
[A] [F] [C] [D]  
 G |-------------------------------------|
 D |-------------------------------------|
 A |-------------------3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5--|
 E |--5-5-5-5--1-1-1-1-------------------|

for the chorus, he just plays the A-F-C-D notes along with the guitar
other than that, that is basically it.
any corrections (which there will probabaly will be), suggestions,
comments, THANK-YOU notes, requests or anything else, just e-mail
me and i will eventually get back to you.
remember, print it out on the NOTEPAD in windows!

For those of you have read my previous transcriptions, you know that
usually doesn't use bar chords, but I think it's easier to use them. So,
here it goes...
"Little Things"
by Bush
from the album "Sixteen Stone"
Intro and Chorus riff (4 times):

Verse 1:
I bleach the sky / Every night
Loaded on wrong / And further from right
Spinning around / Two howling moons
'Cause they're always there / Whatever I do
Riff 1:






[-]Verse 2:
The river is loaded / I've been there today
Took it some questions / She does me again
I'd die in your arms / If you were dead too
Here comes a lie / We will always be true
Bridge (in the middle of Riff 1) :
Going up when coming down
Scratch away, way, way
It's the little / things that kill
Tearin' at my brains again
Oh, the little things that kill
The little things that kill
Bigger you give / Bigger you get
We're boss at denial / But best at forget
Cupboard is empty / We really need food
Summer is winter, and you always knew
Solo (someone PLEASE send this to me!)
Outro (same chords as chorus) :
I touch your mouth / My willy is food
Addicted to a-love / Addicted to fools (shit)
I kill you once / I kill you again
We're starving and crude / Welcome my friends to the
Questions, comments, anything? Send me mail. PLEASE! No one
writes me!
Just to say hi?
