Fu Manchu

Fu Manchu - Evil Eye guitar tab

m: jhalfpenny@mailexcite.com

From the album "The Action is Go" (UK Rel. 1998)

Tabbed by John H 15/4/98 (jhalfpenny@mailexcite.com)

Fu Manchu are a riff-based band, so I'll give you the riffs and lyrics

and let you work out the order for yourself (there really is no point

wet nursing you through the song verbatim as it repeats so much)

The key to playing these tracks live is the density and volume-

at least it was when they played Nottingham the other week- if you're

playing solo get your rhythm humbuckers balanced on maximum, don't use

single-coil pickups if you have them- urgh! ;-)

If there are two of you, guitarist 1 should follow the above setting,

but turn up your input volume so it distorts it a little too much for

the picking section, guitarist 2 should use a crisper treble setting to

create that dense, dirgy feel

Lyrics (Not official)

Verse1

------

Since I was before, with an evil grin

Better break yourself, straight away I'll win

Cold power slide, seperates them all

Never thought you'd brake, unapproachable

Chorus

------

Evil eye has shaped his plan, we're racing on (x2)

Verse2

------

Puts to the floor, half-way through the turn

As we ride up high, do a stop and burn

Wheels of his feet, hits a back-street wall

Evil eye has signalled, unapproachable

Chorus

------

Evil eye has shaped his plan, we're racing on (x2)

Bridge

------

Evil eye will fall (x3)

Outro

-----

Evil eye

Unapproachable

Unapproachable
