CRUSH WITH EYELINER

Song:   Crush, With Eyeliner
Album:  Monster
Tab:    Ryan Bannon

Comments:  So, Rickentalkers requested tab of "Crush, With Eyeliner".  So, why not deliver?
           The version I'm presenting mixes variations of Peter's live performance.

           The most important element of this song is the amplified tremolo.  I don't know if
           it's from a pedal or his VOX amp.  (Actually, I think the studio version uses his
           amp, pedal on the tour).  Please note that, when Peter plays it live, Nathan (December)
           uses the tremolo, not Peter.  So, if you listen to that opening chord on live Monster
           shows, that's Nathan.  Peter comes in right after that.

           Again, this is just a template.  Listen to different live versions and make stuff up
           based on this.  Also, where I have written down open strings between chords, that
           usually means to strum between chords.

From: "Marc" 

Ryan are you sure about that solo? I'm pretty sure that it's played like
this:

e|--------7---------------------|-----10----10----10------12----12----12--15-|
B|--7-----7---------------------|-------10----10------------12----12------15-|
G|--9b11-----r9--7b9r7-5v-------|-9h11----11----11---11h13----13----13----12-|
D|-gradual-----------------7----|--------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------|--------------------------------------------|
E|-----play this part twice-----|--------------------------------------------|

Especially that first part is really different than what you tabbed. What do
the others think?

About the chorus: I think that one of the guitars just plays normal barre
chords, i.e. like this:

e|-7--7--x--5--5--x--3--3-/-5--5--5--x-------|
B|-9--9--x--7--7--x--3--3-/-5--5--5--x-------|
G|-9--9--x--7--7--x--4--4-/-6--6--6--x-------|
D|-9--9--x--7--7--x--5--5-/-7--7--7--x--etc.-|
A|-7--7--x--5--5--x--5--5-/-7--7--7--x-------|
E|-------------------3--3-/-5--5--5--x-------|

Actually I think that the guitar without tremolo is playing the above, and
the guitar with tremolo is playing what you tabbed.

And about the pre-chorus: I think the guitar with tremolo plays this:

e|------------0--------------------|-----------
B|------------0--------------------|-----------
G|-4--4--4--4-4---4-4-4------------|-----------
D|-4--4--4--4-4---4-4-4------------|--chorus---
A|-2--2--2--2-2---2-2-2--2-0-------|-----------
E|---------------------------2qbr2-|-----------
                              qb=quarterbend

I read in an interview that Peter used the tremolo of his Mesa/Boogie
trem-o-verb amp on this song, so he didn't use a pedal. But maybe they did
use one live.
