Need a little help about "Heroin girl"

Post by Blake » Fri May 26, 2006 7:21 pm

I've looked on jasons site and I know the main riffs and everything of heroin girl But I think on his site the opening part at the start of the lyrics of "She had two peirced nipples and a black tattoo" Is wrong (or it just doesn't sound right to me). Does anyone know how to play that part correctly?

yeah its kind of tricky. what i do is play it the way Art played the intro on the live KDGE performance from '96 (acoustically). sounds fine, even on an electric.

e------2------0-----
B--------2-----------
G--3------3---------
D--4----------------
A---4----------------
E----------------------
"She had two pierced nipples and a black tattoo"

I play that twice and on the third time, right as you finish saying tattoo, you go into this:

e------2------0-------0----2------0------------------
B--------2-------0------------2------------------------
G--3------3--------3------------3-------4-4-4-3----
D--4--------------------------------------5-5-5-4-----
A---4-------------------------------------5-5-5-4-----
E-----------------------------------------3-3-3-2------

The whole time you can just hold it as a bar (barre?SP?) chord and play the notes that way so when you play the power chords you don't have to change your hand.
