Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.


Burn the Witch  Queens of the Stone Age

Nobody tabbed this in the right tuning, so here it is. J Ho's playing bass here. This
tab is in C, but it's actually in E tuning, great blues song with Billy Gibbon (bearded
rabbi-looking chap from ZZ Top). I
love this song, enjoy
