This is a Call
 by the Foo Fighters.

Transcribed by Anthony Tong ad201@torfree.net

Listen to song to piece it together & for exact rhythm.
The first time I sent this in I was WAY off.. assuring, isn't it?

Normal tuning.

Intro: touch your jack with this rythm(/), then plug it(+):

       / // / +

Verse:
E                                                G
Visiting is pretty, visiting is good, seems that all they ever
A             E          A
wanted was a brother

Chorus:

  Gtr 1
  F#        A               E          F#    A         E
  This is a call to all my  past resignation This is a call

Gtr 2
e-----0-----------0--------------0-------0-------0-------
B---0---0------0-----0---------0---0---0---0---0---0-----
G-4---------3---------------2---------3------4-----------
D--------------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------

Post-Chorus Riff:
Gtr 1
E7        NC  B   D op A
e--(0)------------2--0---
B---5---------4-X-3--0-2-

D---------------------------6---------4-X-0----2- etc...
A------------------6b(1/2)--7-7-------2--------0-
E-------------------------0-0-0-0-3-0------------

If available, have a second guitarist, itll sound better.


Outro:
The first part is the same as the post chorus riff,
the second part goes like this:

Gtr 1
E-0-0-7-0-0-7-6-7-0-0-7-0-0-7-6-7-0-0--7-0-0--7--6--7-

Gtr 2

Ending:

I think youll find yourself what goes where.

I don't know if it's exacltly as they recorded it, but it sounds
like it. When I say "Tab", its not exactly right. I give you
the chords for verses and choruses. "Tab" is for the riff after the
2nd chorus and outro.

Standard tuning: E-A-D-G-B-E

E                                                G

          A            E        A
they ever wanted was a brother   ....

F#        A              E          F#
This is a call to all my past resignations
A         E           A
This is a call to all ....

Riff:
