Alright, this is a fun song but it a zillion parts, and I'm doubting I'll be 
to arrange them all neatly for ya, but I'll try to put them in order when I tab
good luck deciphering all this, cause as usual with showbread I'm not really
sure what to name these riffs... we'll see how it goes.

Shaneathin86 - 2005-02-23

wow i'm sry friends but something happened and i lost like 80% of the tab


Shaneathin86 - 2005-02-23

maybe it'll be fixed... maybe not if not in like a month i'll resubmit the rest of it


Shaneathin86 - 2005-02-24

well i posted a question about this in the site issues and the tab admin. guy is helpin me out. i resubmitted the tab so hopefully it'll be up soon.


Mickey - 2005-02-24

It's fixed now. You had a less-than symbol in the tab, which your browser interprets as the beginning of an HTML tag, which then hides everything after it. Anyhow, it's fixed.


Shaneathin86 - 2005-02-24

sweet its all good now except there's some typo's.
near the end when it says
-1111-3333-
-1111-3333-
-1111-3333-
its suposed to say
-3333-5555-
-3333-5555-
-1111-3333-


Shaneathin86 - 2005-03-08

also trying sliding into the 5 on the D string during the intro, sounds better.
D----/5-b6bbb------
A------5-----------


Shebz - 2005-03-25

can sum1 pleeze post a "Welcom to the Plainfield Tobe Hooper"????!! that song is wicked awesome and
it has the most weirdest title! lol


ABAC-P - 2005-03-27

awesome tab. A couple minor nitpicks, but not even worth mentioning.

the title "Welcome to Plainfield Tobe Hooper" I believe i referring to the movie "Plainfield", which is a very strange movie.


irontones13 - 2005-03-28

im pretty sure its about the texas chainsaw masscre


Shebz - 2005-06-10

ohhh, i still dun get it, but what the hay!! lol...neway...good tab


Shaneathin86 - 2005-10-25

G----------------9
D-5--7--2--5--7--9
A-5--7--2--5--7--7
E-3--5--0--3--5---
minor detail but necessary to be right


mikschmity - 2008-08-15

Tobe Hooper is the director of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre"...
