Miss The Misery Tab
!Tabbed from a live version of the song as the record is not yet released!

INTRO:

... put some 'wah' on and just slowly play something like this and let all ring out ... 
or just make some noise^^ ...

e-0--------------------------------------------------|
b-0--------------------------------------------------|
G-x---------0--2--3--0-------0--2--3--0--------------|
D-2--------------------------------------------------|
A-2--------------------------------------------------|
E-0--------------------------------------------------|

Then without 'wah' the MAIN RIFF (distorted):

e-----------------------------------------------------|
b-----------------------------------------------------|
G------0--2--0-2-3-0----------------------------------|
D-2----0--2-------------------------------------------|
A-2----x--0-------------------------------------------|
E-0----3b---------------------------------------------|

Listen to the song for the rhythm and play it dirty, sloppy and with passion!
It's rock'n'roll, guys!

Main riff- Variations:

e-----------------------------------------------------|
b-----------------------------------------------------|
G------0--2-------------------------------------------|
D-2----0--2-------------------------------------------|
A-2----x--0--5h7-7-5----------------------------------|
E-0----3b---------------------------------------------|

Grohl is playing something like the melody when Shifflett is doing the background vocal thing.
Not sure about this though:

e-----------------------------------------------------|
b-----------------------------------------------------|
G-12---11----9----7--------(0-2-3-0)------------------|
D--x----x----x----x-----------------------------------|
A-10----9----7----5-----------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------|

Later in the song this is also played once within a main riff section:

e-----------------------------------------------------|
b-----------------------------------------------------|
G-------------10/12-12----------------12/14-14------|
D-2----8--10--10/12-12----2----10-12--12/14-14------|
A-2----8--10--8-/10-10----2----10-12--10/12-12------|
E-0----6--8----------------0----8--10-----------------|

_____________________________________________________________________



VERSE:

The verse is just the main riff played clean, or what I like to play:

e-----------------------------------------------------|
b-----------------------------------------------------|
G------0--2----0-2-2-0--------------------------------|
D-2----0--2----0-2-2-0--------------------------------|
A-2----x--0----x-0-0-x--------------------------------|
E-0----3b------3-----3--------------------------------|

Sometimes a distorted guitar will play some chord or bits of the riff simultaniously. 
Quite randomly though.

PRECHORUS:

|still the verse| DISTORTION!
e----------------|-------------------------------------|
b----------------|-------------------------------------|
G------0--2------|--7-9-9-9----------------------------|
D-2----0--2------|--7-9-9-9----------------------------|
A-2----x--0------|--5-7-7-7----------------------------|
E-0----3---------|-------------------------------------|

Just downstrokes:

"Miss the misery ..."
e------------------------------------------------------------------|
b------------------------------------------------------------------|
G------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--|
A-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--|
E------------------------------------------------------------------|

e--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

D-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-x--x--x--x---x-x-x-x-x---|
A-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9--9--9--9--10-10-10/12--|
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

This is also played once in a different rhythm ... listen to the song, it's not too hard 
to figure out.

like this:

D U D  D D  D D D D  D U D  D D D D D D
e------------------------------------------|
b------------------------------------------|
G------------------------------------------|
D-5-5-5--5-5--7-7-7-7--9-9-9--9-9-4-4-4-4--|
A-3-3-3--3-3--5-5-5-5--7-7-7--7-7-2-2-2-2--|
E------------------------------------------|
         |dont   let|       |these downs ring out|

Hope that helps.

LEAD GUITAR:

This is played over the last prechorus and the last chorus.

e-12----12----12-----12-----14----14----14----14------|
b----12----12----12-----12-----12----12----12----12---|
G-----------------------------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------|

e-12----12----12-----12-----11----11----11----11------|
b----12----12----12-----12-----12----12----12----12---|
G-----------------------------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------|

e-12----12----12-----12-----14----14----14----14------|
b----12----12----12-----12-----12----12----12----12---|
G-----------------------------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------|

before going back to the main riff I tend to play the last bit just like:

e-12----12----12-----12-----14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14---|
b----12----12----12-----12--12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12---|
G-----------------------------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------|

That's about it I think.
Comments and improvements are welcome.
Enjoy!
(So far, my favorite song of the new record)

About the artist behind Miss The Misery Tab:

Foo Fighters is an American alternative rock band formed by singer/guitarist Dave Grohl in 1995.[1] Grohl formed the group as a one-man project after the dissolution of his previous band Nirvana in 1994. Prior to the release of Foo Fighters in 1995, Grohl drafted Nate Mendel (bass), William Goldsmith (drums), and Pat Smear (guitar) to complete the group. Goldsmith and Smear left after the recording of the group's second album The Colour and the Shape (1997). They were replaced by Taylor Hawkins and Franz Stahl, respectively, although Stahl left prior to the recording of the group's third album, There Is Nothing Left to Lose (1999).

Chris Shiflett joined as the band's second guitarist after the completion of There is Nothing Left to Lose. The band released its fourth album One by One in 2002. The group followed that release with the two-disc In Your Honor (2005), which was split between acoustic songs and harder-rocking material. Foo Fighters released its sixth album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in 2007. Over the course of the band's career, three of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, and all six have been nominated for Grammys.
