    Wolfmother

Hey guys, this is a tab for Wolfmother's new song "Pilgrim".
Now this is based on their first concert since their breakup,
when they played the show as White Feather. I'm not sure,
they may change it up in the new album. But for now, this is
how they play it. I'm sure this is correct, because I can see
Andrew Stockdale's hands in the video. I hope you like
playing this song, it's an awesome tune!!! Now that they
have 2 guitarists, I'll try to split them into
dual parts like Wolfmother plays them. It's a 12 bar
blues song, pretty simple. Enjoy!

Solo (sort of): Now for this Andrew is just
messing around in the E minor pentatonic
scale while using his Fulltone Wah Pedal.
It is really just unintelligible notes, so
no use for me listening to it over and over
 again to figure it out when I know that's
not how he'll play it on the album. So just
 play an improvised solo from the E minor
pentatonic while using a wah wah and it'll
sound very similar to his solo. In case you
don't know the scale, here are all the notes
in the scale (with a few added notes that are
 still in the scale but not in the mode. it's
 all the notes Stockdale uses in the solo.)

g---------------------12-14-----------------------------------------|
d--------------12-14------------------------------------------------|
a--------12-14------------------------------------------------------|
E--12-15------------------------------------------------------------|

Now just play notes from that scale, along with bends to other notes in that scale, and 
be great.

During the solo, guitar 2 will be playing Verse:

Small solo:
In this section, only guitar 1 plays. No drums,
 bass, keyboard, or guitar 2. For this, he plays
a little lower down in a different mode of the pentatonic.
 I can hear it a lot better, so I'll tab it for you. If you
 want to play something else in E pentatonic, go ahead.
This solo is not very good and I'm pretty sure he screwed up
 the ending, so feel free to improvise your own. But if you
want to play it like White Feather played it in Sydney,
here it is:

At the end, go crazy! Play with amp feedback,
swing your guitar around, have a drum solo, whatever!
Hold out that 5b for as long as you want and tremelo
pick the last chords, E power chords, for however
long you think you should. I hope you enjoy playing
this, it's a great early song. You can do whatever variations
 you think there should be, because I can guarantee
you Wolfmother will change it up by the time they put
 it on the album. But this is how they played it in
Sydney, and so that is how I tabbed it.
