Marilyn Manson tabs

The Great Big White World guitar tab

Artist: Marilyn Manson
Song: Great Big White World
Album: Mechanical Animals

Standard tuning  this should be pretty easy to understand and I guarantee that 
its accurate just trust me on that I spent a good portion of 3 hours going over and over it.

Notations
^    bend ( basically all the bends in this song are only a half step except during the solo near the end)
/     slide up   \  slide down
hey, would you believe that's it?
If you want to know exactly how many times everything is played just keep reading im setting this up
In many different ways so everyone can better understand it all
Riff  (A)     this riff is heard through out the song

just listen to the song you'll get it

Fill 2 (F2)
 I know I know it just keeps going but I tabbed all the guitar in this song
This is actually the solo 
Play each note and bend the tremlo back to stretch your strings and cause 
the pitch to raise about one full step.  If you don't have a tremlo just bend the string
but make sure you exaggerate the bend

continue to play the part in between the line until the end of the song
and that's all the guitar in the song
