The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret  Queens of the Stone Age

Song: The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret
Artist: Queens of the Stone Age
Album: Rated R
Ok this is the second single off of Rated R and its class.
This is pretty simple as well although there are two
guitars playing, one an octave higher on certain bits to give
it a layered effect but its not that important.
All guitars tuned down two whole steps to C
Low to High=C,F,Bb,Eb,G,C
Im not gonna put how many times you hit each chord unless
its a little tricky to hear.

Do that twice, except dragging out the bends a little
more. They're all full bends btw

Really drag out those first 2 bends
Outro
I think both guitars play this, probably with a little
variation in there somewhere.
