Heart Factory

Dig Me Out, "Heart Factory"

Slow for a S-K song. It's got an extra guitar in Riff 1 and an organ or something for the high notes in Riff 3 (bridge). Mainly it has that great discordant Riff 1 that pumps away like a heart beat. You can do fine without the 3rd guitar. The top part of Riff 1 is a good finger exercise. Rock and roll doesn't usually make your fingers do that.

  • Quarter note = 124 or so
  • Standard tuning.
  • Tabbed where it felt good on the fretboard but  tuning down would help get the low D-flats (A#)
