CRASH COURSE IN BRAIN SURGERY

Words and music by: Raymond Phillips, John Burke Shelley and Anthony Bourge

From the Elektra recording: The $9.98 Garage Days ReRevisted, E.P.

Transcribed by Travis Fitch

An excellent song, so I've tried to include as much information as possible
below (the guitar solo is missing, but I am working on that, I won't post it
for a while, but if you e-mail me on the above address, I could get it to
you within a day or 2 of recieving your message, might just motivate me a tad
bit more) The TAB might seem a little difficult to understand at first, but I
sugget that you print it out and read through a couple of times, just to get
a feel for the song and the way the TAB is written out (sorry if there are
any mistakes present, which knowing the way I type, there probably are).
You'll have to listen to the song again anyway, to get a feel for the timing,
anyway I've had enough for now, so any fixes, mistakes, comments et cetera,
don't be afraid to let me know

Enjoy
GaT..

The song is in 4/4 at around 185 - 190 bpm

"Drop D" tuning (low to high: D A D G B E)

Verse 1
Look inside and you will see the words are cutting deep inside my brain.
Thunder burning, quickly burning.
Knife of words is driv'n me insane.
Insane!
Yeah!

Verse 2
Raven black is on my back.
He showed me how to neutralise the knife
Show to me, in surgery, the art of fighting words to conquer life.
Conquer life!
Yeah!

Verse 3
Now the wicked lance of fear is drivn' from my heady mountain brain.
Crash course in brain surgery has stopped the bloddy knife of words again.
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
