Not sure whether to put this here on the genre forum; move if necessary.

I've been playing guitar for a while so I don't find it TOO difficult, but with all that stretching and muting, I often mute the wrong strings or a note comes out muffled, not played etc.
Basically what I play is definitely recognizable as the song, but not perfect.

Any tips on playing it smoothly?

And what fingers do you personally use for each string in the intro and main verse chords?
I can't stretch from 7 to 12... and I'm using the same guitar Josh Homme uses.

hi, so i tried it,my best guess is to play it like this
7-index f
8-mid f
9-ring
12-no other choice than pinky here m8

hope this helps

That tab's odd. I play the song without hitting the 12 and it sounds fine.


Mmm 'tis a stretch but I can definitely hear the high C in the song.

You have that super-rare Ovation? Or that Westwood copy? Either way, you lucky bastard.

It has to be remembered that Homme has massive, massive hands.

practice stretching your fingers doing various chord shapes

Here's one I use to kind of get in the mood for stretching (sorry for the half assed tab too):

E:-------------------------------------
B:--------------------------------------
G:-------4--1--------------5--2------
D:-----3------2----------4------3----
A:---2----------3------3----------4---
E:-1--------------4--2---------------5

And just continue moving it up a fret after cleanly picking each note. Then move it to the A string, then the D string. It's not meant to be musical, just practical. (and yes, GP readers will know Joe Satriani also recommends this excercise).

Yes I think I got everyone excited when I said I had Josh Hommes guitar. I don't know why I said it, I just wanted to feel big.
But yes, I have the same guitar as him, his mighty Epiphone Dot. lolz.
I always wondered why he doesn't get the gibson 335 to replace it.

Practice the song slower - there'll be a speed at which you can play it perfectly. It might be a snail's pace but that's the way it goes, once you've mastered the actions required to play it slowly you can look at performing them faster.

It doesn't really matter how long you've been playing, you're always going to have to spend some time learning new things.
