Does anyone have tabs to Picasso Moon or know where I can find them. I've looked on a lot of different sites and no one has them. I thought at one time they where on this site. Can anybody help me out.

No Problem:

Opening riff:

E|-------------------------2--
B|-------------------------4--
G|-------------------------4--
D|-------------------------4--
A|--4--2-----2-------------2--
E|--------5-----5p0--2--5--2--

The first few lines you play this riff and the B chord over. It's hard to describe: just figure out the above riff and listen to a few versions..
Code: Select all
(Riff)
South of Market in the land of ruin
(Riff)
You get all manner of action
(Riff)
Tinsel tigers in The Metal Room
(Riff)
Stalking satisfaction.
(Riff)
They got 'em packaged up for love and money
(Riff)
Tattooed tots and chrome spike bunnies
(Riff)
Check my conscience at the DMZ
B
And roll on in, gonna roll in it, honey
D                            B
But I get a feelin like when big things collide
         D                              B
Like the crack before the thunder, like I really ought to hide
    D                                 B
And here comes Metal Angel, she looks ready to ride;
& What's that she's tryin' to show me..?
What's that you're tryin' to show me..?

Chorus:
E             F#        E
Picasso Moon, shattered light
E               F#             E
Diamond bullets ripping up the night
E             F#       E
Picasso Moon, liberate me,
E                  F#       E
From the middle of eternity,
E                          F#        E   Db
Something hooks her little finger at me,
Db
An' it's bigger than a drive-in movie, ooooo-eeee.
Bigger than a drive-in movie, ooooo-eeee.
(Riff)
I'm not near my Dead collection at the moment, but I'm fairly certain that one of the riffs at the start of the verse goes briefly to a D for 2 counts before you hit that B chord.

Hope this helps!

INTRO RIFF 2x (start on 3rd)


Hanging ten out on space and time
Redefining distance
The next skull on your necklace is mine
Cheap for such assistance

I had a job trading bits for pieces
We'd make wrinkles, advertise them as creases
Please find my resignation enclosed
Roll with it, come on let's roll with it, honey

Strikes the morning, the atomic dawn
Scramble back to cover
Quick, pop your mirrored sunglasses on
My little leather-winged lover

I see your face printed on my money
Your brazen ways really move me, honey
Heart of darkness, yeah, yeah
Why am I laughing, this ain't funny

Dark angel, now just don't start

You'll break my spirit, you'll wreck my heart

You must have a license for practicing that art

No, I don't presume to imagine

Blazing lace filling every frame

The bells are ringing, it's way unreal \\\\|\\\\
Trying to tell y'all about just how it feels \\\\|\\\\
And it's bigger than a drive-in movie, for real

That matches closely what I posted years ago. Since that time:
- the verse line that goes to the D it also moves the B right afterwards
- in the chorus there's some movement on the first E. watch the built to last studio videos. i think i see what he does but can't be 100% since I don't hear it and then vice versa.
