Ill Be Yours

  		Artist: Placebo 
Song: Ill Be Yours 


Alright, hey now hey people. This is Placebo's song, "I'll Be Yours," from their album 
Sleeping With Ghosts, and if you don't have it I suggest you go get it if you consider 
yourselves a fan, and even if not, its got some real different stuff on it, this is one 
hell of a progression from last time. 

For a guitarist wanting to do a placebo cover, this is a no-brainer, there's no funky 
tuning or anything special like that involved, just a nice, simple little  riff and a 
really easy solo at the end. Hell, you don't even need so much as a regular chord. 

So this is my first tab, cut me a little slack. Its mostly similar to the other versions 
out there, but what I'd say is definitely don't use double-picking on the song. Dunno if 
thats the right technical term or whatnot, but I really would avoid playing this as the following: 

8-8-8 
-----  <---------- No! Never! EVIL! 
6-6-6 

8-8-8  
8-8-8  <---------- the (albeit incorrect) nice way 
6-6-6 

The reason I suggest this is simple; I honestly don't think it sounds good. Lets face it 
guys; you're never going to manage a true Brian Molko sound, lets deal with it. Instead, 
just keep it simple. Its easiest all round really. 

I'll continue waffling after I finish the tab, I can imagine you guys getting a little impatient now.

Post-chorus solo 
(note: this is supposedly played twice, once alone and once with the verse as well. 
Actual recommendation is to play once, then revert back to the main verse unless 
a second gutiarist is involved). 



E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
B|---4-----------4---------------------------------------------------------- 
G|-3---3-1-----3---3-1------------------------------------------------------ 
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
A|---------4-6---------4-6-------------------------------------------------- 
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Then, revert back to the verse and chorus. Finally, the solo at the end of the song, 
to which the singer (Molko) occassionally says "yours": 

------------ 
------------ 
-3-1-3-1-1-4 
------4-4--- 
------------ 
------------ x3 

------------- 
------------- 
-3-1-3-1----8 (let ring) 
------4-4-3-- 
------------- 
------------- 

Thus completing the song. 

Now, thats the song bog standard without any suggestions or anything. I'd recommend, 
ofr a sound unlike placebo's: 

 - using a distortion pedal (example: Boss DS-1) on the post-chorus solo & final solo, 
or on the chorus 

 - using a palm-mute build-up on the chorus itself 

 - generally intensifying the song performance, making it rougher 

 - using a harmonic on the last note of the solo (i'll leave you to work it out) 


Okay, thats it. I'd like to think that for a first attempt at tabbing, it isn't terrible.
