Dog Inside Your Body Tabs by Butthole Surfers

 DOG INSIDE YOUR BODY
by the butthole surfers
chris lawrence (mustang@islandnet.com)
This song is in drop D. DADGBE (could be DGCFAD too, but
drop D is easier)
I'll be the first to admit that this tab is not very good.
Intro:
E--------------------|
B--------------------| X 4
G--------------------|
D--------------------|
A--0-0-0-0-----------|
D--0-0-0-0-0-8-12-11-|
The verse is just a palm-muted open D chord w/ the intro riff
tagged on the end.
The little backwards sounding guitar riff is achieved by bending
the G string at the 3rd fret. I can't really tab it, you just need
to listen and figure out when to bend and return, how high to bend,
etc.
The chorus ("I feel you, I need you...") is the intro riff.
Back to more of the palm-muted open D again. Listen to the record
to hear when to throw the little intro riff in.
The 2nd backwards sounding skronky guitar consists of notes at
the 1st and 2nd fret of the G string, with some open G thrown
in at times too.
SOLO:     / = tremolo pick (pick very fast, listen to lp)
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--10-13-10-13-10-13-10-13b~~~~-b13r-13b-13-12----------------------------|

D--12----12-------------12-10-12-----------------------high bend-|
A----------------------------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|
and back to the verse "riff"...
and at the end, there's one last skronky riff.. again, any variety
of notes within the first 5 frets on the G string, bent wildly
back and forth, will suffice.

and bend up a half-step to a whole step, while picking, then bring it back down.
The verses are an E G D progression.
