The Slaughter Chords
Artist: John Frusciante
Album: Shadows Collide With People
Song: The Slaughter

In this song the hard part is getting all the chords and the timing right.
As you can I've typed down three ways of taking the A and B chords, and
in this song it would be to use all three. Different places it will be
easier to grab the next chord if the previous chord is lying closer.
For example, in the 2nd chorus it is easier to use the A chord 
before the A/F7 chord, while in the next line it is easier to use the A
chord x02220 before the Amaj7 chord. Try to work it out for yourself
It's the same chord, it is just easier to shift to the next one.

Verse 1
Ab                          A
 You'll be there in the slaughter
A#dim7                  B
 Freeing me when I'm cornered
        C#m           Cdim7
Being arrested by the mind cops
             E                F#m6             A
They're the only ones worth changing what you do for
       A             Am
And I try - to be in line

          E                 Cdim7                C#m
I got my fate and what it's good for there's no telling
       B

         A
It's a flood

 She'll take me straight through that gate

Verse 2
Ab                   A
 Living there in a flower
A#dim7                         B
 You wouldn't have made it without her
                    C#m
Though she seems to stay in one place
     Cdim7
She grows with your life
    E
So cry for time
       F#m6                 A
What's slow is fast at the same time
     A         Am
It comes - to life

           E
And if it dies
      Cdim7             C#m
You'd never notice cause it
      B             A
It slides - as it climbs

Chorus
E      Ab       A     C#m
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Ab       A     Amaj7
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Ab       A     C#m
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Ab       A     Amaj7
 I'll know her face a mile away

E      Ab       A     C#m
 I'll know my pains a life away
E      Ab       A     Amaj7
 I'll know my pains a life away
E      Ab       A     C#m
 I'll know my pains a life away
E      Ab       A      A
 I'll know my pains a life

About the artist behind The Slaughter Chords:

John Anthony Frusciante (pronounced [fruːˈʃɑːnteɪ (info)) (born March 5, 1970) is an American guitarist, singer, songwriter and record producer. He is best known as the guitarist of the alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, with whom he has recorded five studio albums. Frusciante also maintains an active solo career, having released nine albums under his own name, as well as two collaborations with Josh Klinghoffer and Joe Lally under the name Ataxia. His solo recordings incorporate a variety of elements ranging from experimental rock and ambient music to New Wave and electronica. Drawing influence from guitarists of various genres, Frusciante emphasizes melody and emotion in his guitar playing, and favors vintage guitars and analog recording techniques.

Frusciante joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the age of eighteen, first appearing on the band's 1989 album Mother's Milk. The group's follow-up album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, was a breakthrough success. However, he was overwhelmed by the band's newfound popularity and as a result quit in 1992. He became a recluse and entered a long period of heroin addiction, during which he released his first recordings: Niandra Lades and Usually Just a T-Shirt (1994) and Smile from the Streets You Hold (1997). In 1998, Frusciante successfully completed drug rehabilitation and rejoined the Chili Peppers for their 1999 album Californication. Since then he has continued to record with the band and has received critical recognition for his guitar-playing, ranking eighteenth on Rolling Stone's list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2003.[1]
