                The Idol: WASP

This is a great song, the acoustic version is hot and so is the live version on double live assassins. 
The other version on here says stick a capo on the first fret… personally I prefer the tab below. 
This is a great to play in band; I just go off on it. 

Intro Riff:
	Em		              C	              D
Eb |-----3----2/3-3---5p3---7-----5-----3-----2----0--5-----3-----2-|
Bb |---5---5------------------5-------1---1----1--------3-----3-----|
Gb |-4--------------4-----4-----4-----0-----0----0--------2-----2---|
Db |----------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab |----------------------------------------------------------------|
Eb |----------------------------------------------------------------|


Second part of intro:
     Em		    Bm		    C		 D
Eb |-3---------------2--------------3------------5-5-----3-----2----|
Bb |-5---------------3--------------5------------3---3-----3--------|
Gb |-4---------------4--------------5------------2-----2-----2------|
Db |-----2-2-2-2-2-------2-2-2-2-2------2-2-2-2---------------------|
Ab |---2---------------2--------------2-----------------------------|
Eb |----------------------------------------------------------------|
*This part is played on two guitars, guitar one does the fiddly picking pick, while guitar two plays the low part*


Lyrics for second part of intro:

Will I be alone this morning? Will I need my friends?
Something just to ease away the pain
No one ever sees the loneliness behind my face
I am just a prisoner to my fame

Verse 1: *play Em in the open position*
Em				Dsus2
If I could only stand and stare in the mirror would I see
Am	    Dsus2	     Em
One fallen hero with a face like me?
Em				Dsus2
And if I scream, could anybody hear me?
Am		   Dsus2	 		  Em
If I smash the silence you'll see what fame has done to me


Pre chorus:
C5	          D5		  E5
Kiss away the pain and leave me lonely
I'll never know if loves a lie... oh being…
Crazy in paradise is easy
C5		D5		C5		Am
Do you see the prisoners in my eyes?

Chorus:
Em			D5
Where's the love, to shelter me
C5			D5
Give me love, love sets me free

*Play the above twice.. then*

Am
Set me free

Solo:

This is what guitar two plays during the solo, guitar one plays a lead using the E minor pentatonic.. so just mess around with it until you find something you like. 

     E	       D 	Am	G	       Em
Eb |-------------------0-0-0-0-----------------0-0-0-0/-|
Bb |-------------------1-1-1-1-----------------0-0-0-0/-|
Gb |-9-9-9-9--7-7-7-7--2-2-2-2-----------------0-0-0-0/-|
Db |-9-9-9-9--7-7-7-7--2-2-2-2------0-----0----2-2-2-2/-|
Ab |-7-7-7-7--5-5-5-5--0-0-0-0----2-----2------2-2-2-2/-|
Eb |-------------------x-x-x-x--3-----2----3-2-0-0-0-0/-|

The rest of the song is basically a repeat of the above.
