Bull Black Nova Tab
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             Bull Black Nova - Wilco
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I looked for tabs for this song but couldn't find any I liked, so this is
 what I've learned from listening to and playing along with the song. I'm
 not sure about everything (there are three guitars and a keyboard, it can
 be hard to tell them all apart). It sounds like they trade parts sometimes
 in the song, but for simplicity's sake I'll just keep everything consistent
 as guitars 1, 2 and 3. 
Any corrections are welcome.

Guitarists:
Jeff Tweedy
Nels Cline
Patrick Sansone

Tuning:Standard (EADGBE)

Intro
Guitar 1 repeats this until the verse:

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2 does something like this:
e|----------------0------------------------------------------------------|
B|----1-----------1------------------------------------------------------|
G|------3---------0------------------------------------------------------|
D|--2-------------2------------------------------------------------------|
A|3---------------3------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-|x2

A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus:
This is tricky, but these chords sound alright (listen for the timing)
  G      F          G     F A G
e|3------1----------3-3-3-1-5-3------------------------------------------|
B|3------1----------3-3-3-1-5-3------------------------------------------|
G|4------2----------4-4-4-2-6-4------------------------------------------|
D|5------3----------5-5-5-3-7-5------------------------------------------|
A|5------3----------5-5-5-3-7-5------------------------------------------|
E|3------1----------3-3-3-1-5-3------------------------------------------|

Verse 2:

Guitar 1- varies a little throughout the verse, but is based on this:
  C
e|--------------0------------------------1-------0-----------------------|
B|--------1-------1----------------1---------1-------1-------------------|
G|----0-----0-------0----------0-----0---------0-------0-----------------|
D|--2------------------------2---------2---------------------------------|
A|3------------------------3---------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2- same as verse 1

Chorus x2

Bridge/lead- I have no idea what Cline and Tweedy are doing here, either
 improvise or figure it out for yourself

Interlude- this is the part right after the bridge where the keyboard and
 guitars go back and forth (timing isn't exact)

Guitar 1:
e|20-20-------20-20------------20-20-------------20-20-----------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|17-17-------17-17------------17-17-------------17-17-----------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2:
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------16-16------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------17-17--------------17-17------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------15-15--------------15-15------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitars 1 and 2 keep playing these octaves of C, while guitar 3 comes in
 with that crazy metallic scratching sound (strumming behind the bridge on a
 Fender Jazzmaster while muting the strings)

Verse 3: 
Transitions from the interlude to the same arrangement as verse 2, except
 that guitar 1 plays an octave higher (x15x17xx instead of x3x5xx).

Chorus (again, the weird metallic sound is either Cline or Tweedy playing
 behind the bridge)

After that everyone just goes crazy, it sounds like guitar 1 keeps playing
 the same octave but just faster while guitar 2 launches into a lead using a
 diatonic pitch effect... guitar 3 plays a very deep, fuzzed-out riff in the
 background (might actually be a baritone guitar). Then it goes back to the
 verse arrangement for a while, then back to chaos.

About the artist behind Bull Black Nova Tab:

Wilco is an American rock band based in Chicago, Illinois. The band was formed in 1993 by the remaining members of alternative country group Uncle Tupelo following singer Jay Farrar's departure from that group. Wilco's lineup has changed frequently, with only singer Jeff Tweedy and bassist John Stirratt remaining from the original incarnation. The other current members are guitarist Nels Cline, multi-instrumentalists Pat Sansone and Mikael Jorgensen, and drummer Glenn Kotche. Wilco has released six studio albums, a live double album, and three collaborations: two with Billy Bragg, and one with The Minus 5.

Wilco's music has been inspired by a wide variety of artists and styles, including Bill Fay and Television, and has in turn influenced music by The National and Cherry Ghost. The band continued in the alternative country of Uncle Tupelo on its debut album A.M. (1995), but has since introduced more experimental aspects to their music.

Wilco garnered media attention for its fourth album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2002), and the controversy surrounding it. After the recording sessions were complete, Reprise Records rejected the album and dismissed Wilco from the label. As part of a buy-out deal, Reprise gave Wilco the rights to the album for free. After streaming Foxtrot on its website, Wilco sold the album to Nonesuch Records in 2002. Both record labels are subsidiaries of Warner Music Group, leading one critic to say that the album showed "how screwed up the music business [was] in the early twenty-first century."[1] Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is Wilco's most successful release to date, selling over 590,000 copies. Wilco won two Grammy Awards for their fifth studio album, 2004's A Ghost Is Born, including Best Alternative Music Album.
