TAB

            "Does someone wanna tell me what the hell Era Vulgaris means? Is it like some kind of
infection or something? If so, then count me in!"

Judging from the guitar Josh Homme uses, this song is in E Standard tuning, but I did it 
C standard, so keep that in mind.

(*note*I'm gonna try to put each line he sings on the correct chord, but it may be a
off here and there. If it goes past the guitar tab then assume it's within the same phrase.)
