This is what I've come up with for Big Head Todd and the Monsters
song "Bittersweet" from their latest album.  I make no guarrante as
to the accuracy, but it sounds pretty close when I play along with
the song.  Please E-Mail/Post me any corrections....
 
 
The basic riff:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  G        D              Am  C
 
--1--1--1--2--2----3-2-------------------------------------------
--0--0--0--3--3----3-3----1-----1--------------------------------
--0--0--0--2--2----2-2----2-----0------------0-0-2-0----0--------
--------------------------2-----2---------2-----------2---0------
------------------------------3-------3--------------------------
 
 
 
A slight variation on the above ending:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 C
 
---------------------------------
---------------------------------
--------0-0-2-0------------------
-----2----------2-0--------------
--3------------------------------
---------------------------------
 
 
 
Bridge:
~~~~~~~
I know this is not correct, but it is the basic notes.  In reality
he shifts his hand positions up the neck as he plays it, and ends
up with a F-major bar chord on the 5th fret.
 
 C            G         Dm
 
----------------------------------1-----
--------1-----------------------3-------
------0------------------2----2---------
----2-----------------------------------
--3---------------2---3-----3-----------
--------------3-------------------------
 
 
Solo:
~~~~~
I don't have the solo completely worked out, but the basic chords
on the intro are the F-major (5 5 7 5 6 5 ) and G-major 
(7 7 9 7 8 7) bar chords on the 5th and 7th frets respectively.   
 
After the bridge, the solo starts out like this:
 
F
 
---------------------------------------------
------6------6------6------------------------
---------------------------------------------
---7------7------7---------------------------   etc.....
---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
 
Really snap the F on the B-string.  This leads into a rhythm
pattern with the G and F bar chords and a little riff that goes
kind of like this:
 
 
-------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------6-6-6---6/7-------
------------5-5-5---7-------5---7----------------------  repeat
----5---7----------------------------------------------  as
-------------------------------------------------------  necessary
-------------------------------------------------------
 
I'm not really sure on the rest of the solo.... If anyone else can
decipher it and post it, I'd appreciate it......  I know it's just
some basic chords but I can't get it to sound just right.
 
I've been using a combination of the following chords:
 
x x x 7 8 10
x x x 7 8 7 
x x x 7 8 8
x x x x 8 7
x x x x 7 5
x x x x 5 3 
x x x x 10 8
x x x x 12 10
x x x x 15 15
 
I know there is more to it though....
 
 
That's what I've come up with.... Any comments, questions, or
corrections are welcome....
