River Of Deceit - Mad Season
00:00 / 00:00
Tabs and lyrics
Tunning: Standard (E A D G B e)
There are only two basic chords in the whole song-

E A D G B e
F: 0 3 3 2 1 1(somtimes open)
G: 3 2 0 0 3 3

Not too difficult, you just have to figure out the strumming...

[Intro]
e|--------------------------------------------------------|
B|--3---3h5p3--3--0-----------------------------0----0----|
G|--0----------------4p2p0---2---2s4s2p0---2----0----0----| Repeat 3x
D|----------------------------------------------0h2--2----|
A|--------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|

This is basically the same as the first tab at OLGA, so you can use that
one if this one confuses you...

Now this(whatever you call it):
F G
e|--1---------3---3------|
B|--2---2-----3---3------|
G|--3-----2---0---0------| Strum freely, listen to the song.
D|--3---------0---0------|
A|------------2---2------|
E|------------3---3------|

Now this is played throughout the entire song:
F G ?
e|---------3---2--;--3-------------------|
B|--1------3---3--;--3--3h5p3-3----------|
G|--2p0----0---0--;--0-----------4s2p0---| This fill is only played in the
D|--3------0---0--;--0-------------------| second verse, and not all the
A|----------------;--3-------------------| time.
E|----------------;--2-------------------|

Just listen to the song for the strumming.

[Verse] This is where I've seen the majority of the screw ups, here's how
McCready plays it on the video tape.

e|--3------5------8--8--8p7--7--8p7--7--8-------------|
B|--3------5------8--8--8----8--8----8--8-------------|
G|--0------0------0--0--0----0--0----0--0-------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|

The rhythm might be hard to follow, but you can pick that up also
