It's in standard tuning, not drop D, and I think at times you're over thinking some of the chords-most of them are just power chords. I think you're on the right track with hearing where the notes go, and recognizing the patterns and such. I think if you listen to the track and compare it with your tab, you'll realize that the notes you tabbed will often sound lower  than what it's supposed to be. I'll see if I can post a tab within the next few days of how I think the song goes. I recorded a cover of the song, so maybe this can help in the meantime:  :)

Hey, sorry to interrupt your hamster talk, but I was fooling around with my harmonica yesterday and I've figured out how to play Peggy Gordon (well, at least the way the Melvins did it, which seems to differ from the traditional way, but I like their version better). I can write the notation for the C-key harmonica and I can translate it to notes, but I'm no guitarist, so I have no idea what would be the best way to play those notes on guitar. I hope you guys will have a go at it and figure it out.

Dont know if this has been posted but I learned how to play We Are Doomed watching this guys



all credit goes to him. His screen name is DogCowFrog. Enjoy.
I don't play myself but i'd say he's pretty good.



he is!

Yup this guy is the shit. He also does war on wisdom, its not dead on but its close enough to where if you fiddle around with it maybe you can improve on it a little.

Trying to learn from video, but I get cross eyed near the end of the riff (there ain't a whole lot of holding on, going on)

Could someone awesome tab from there to the end of that set of riffs?  (Or the whole song if they have it)?

I wish there were more tabs, since they have released about 500 songs since this was last updated.

Why is the lyrics section many different threads, but the guitar tabs section is one long, meandering thread? Makes it hard to research.  :?
