Anybody got any tips on playing "No One Knows" by Queens of the Stone Age? I looked up the tab and I can play it alright, but I can't get it to sound *just* right.

Thanks

what do you need help with?,,,oyu just gotta be able to use your pinky and be able to move your fingers fast enough,its not that hard to play...and for sound since its downtuned,down tune to the tuning,and just use some distortion not heavy but not weak,ill put a clip of what i use when i play it,so you can maybe get a good idea of how to get a similar sound

Thanks for helping. I play it in C standard. Do you hold the octave C barre chord (9th fret) while doing the little lead part in the main riff? I've almost got it, but I think I should have been a bassist, lol. I have trouble getting that nice, dry sound, too. But I'm playing it through my 10 watt Ibanez practice amp right now. My stack's in the practice space an hour away, so........

^ Yea, I am having a problem with a riff in a cover song. This forum is listed as cover songs, riffs recordings,blah blah blah. If I learned No One Knows by Queens of the Stone Age well enough to play it live with my band, since I didn't write the song, it would be a cover song. So explain to me how I am in the wrong forum.

How am I in the wrong freaking forum? Like I said in a post in a different forum, about Desert Rock, this place is full of elitist buttholes with no open mind. It's all Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, never the Cobains, Grohls, or Hommes.
