From: Paul D 

"Vasoline" by Stone Temple Pilots

First, there's a fade-in with feedback (1) which is soon doubled by a guitar
doing hammer-ons from A to Bb (2) and another guitar does upstrokes on
a really weird chord (see "bridge" section WAY below) then there's a little
descending thing (3) right before you go into the main riff...

Lyrics:
One time a thing occurred to me
What's real and what's for sale
Blew a kiss and tried to take it home.

(CHORUS:
Isn't you, isn't me
Search for things that you can't see.
Goin't blind, out of reach
Somewhere in the Vasoline.)

Two times and it has rendered me
Punch drunk and without bail
Think I'd be safer all alone.
Flies in the vasoline we are
Sometimes it blows my mind
Keep getting stuck here all the time.

(Chorus)

(Bridge:
You'll see the look
And you'll see the lies.
You'll eat the lies
And you will...)

(solo)

Flies in the vasoline we are
Sometimes it blows my mind
Keep getting stuck here all the time.

(chorus)

That's "Vasoline" in a nutshell.  If you need the solo, email me and
be REAL nice and I'll tab it for ya'.
Corrections/comments/augmentations welcome (by email only)
Good luck!

TAB: "Vasoline" by STP (solo)

Okay, I've gotten enough "nice" requests for the solo to this song ever
since I posted the tab a couple of weeks ago.  Honestly though, I think
that anyone with a little lead knowledge could come up with a better solo.
In my opinion, this is not the best lead work I've ever seen (like much of
DeLeo's lead stuff).  DeLeo is a good riffster but not much of a solo-er.
But here it is, as best as I could make it out (it's basically in G):


||-8p7-----8p7-----8p7---|---8p7-----8p7-----8p7-|-----8p7-----8p7-----|
||-----6-6-----6-6-----6-|-6-----6-6-----6-6-----|-6-6-----6-6-----6-6-|

------------------|-------------0-5p0-0-----|-----------0---------|
------------------|---------------------2-2-|---------------------|
------------------|-------------------------|---------------------|


------------------------|---------------------||     p= pull-off
------------------------|---------------------||     b= bend
4p0-4p0-4p0-------------|-4p0-4p0-4p0---------||     bf= bend full
------------0-5p0-0-----|-------------0-5/9\5-||     b&harm= create an
--------------------2-2-|---------------------||       artificial harmonic
------------------------|---------------------||       and bend it full
                                                     ~~~= vibrato

Oh yeah, and someone sent me a suggestion that makes quite a bit of sense.
Instead of playing that fucked up chord that I had in my original tab
(during the intro and bridge) try this:

E---0---
B---3---
G---3---
D---3---
A---0---
E-------

Whoever it was said it sounds pretty much the same.  (Thanks to whoever you
are.)  At any rate, it's MUCH easier to play.
