CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to Throwback Thursday’s where I teach you a classic hit from the last 4-5 decades! This week, by request, I’ll be covering a Snuff Guitar Tutorial from metal band Slipknot! I absolutely love this track and for all the amazing heavy songs they write, they’re just as capable of writing a softer emotional ballad. In the recorded version the guitarists actually tune their guitars down 3 semitones which is a real hassle, so I teach you an easy way to play this is standard tuning. Chord and structure wise, this is an incredibly easy song and is based off just 6 chord shapes. There’s also some really nice lead parts to learn.

At the end of the video i’ll be playing through the entirety of #snuff with a vocal track on top for you to play along to. Enjoy! Like this #snuff video by #slipknot and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!

[Verse]
 Em                  G/B  C     G/B
Bury all your secrets in my skin
 Em                      G/B C                     G/B
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
 Em                       G/B      C      G/B
The air around me still feels like a cage
 Em                         G/B  C                      G/B
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again…

[Break]
Em G/B C G/B
Em G/B C

[Chorus]
                        D                      Em
So if you love me, let me go. And run away before I know.
                             D                              Em
My heart is just too dark to care. I can't destroy what isn't there.
                    D                           Em
Deliver me into my Fate - If I'm alone I cannot hate
                       D
I don't deserve to have you…
    C                                                    Em
My smile was taken long ago / If I can change I hope I never know

[Verse]
    Em                  G/B    C        G/B
I still press your letters to my lips
     Em                       G/B  C                 G/B
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
   Em                        G/B  C        G/B
I couldn't face a life without your light
    Em                           G/B C       
But all of that was ripped apart… when you refused to fight

[Chorus]
                                D                             Em 
So save your breath, I will not hear. I think I made it very clear.
                          D                                Em
You couldn't hate enough to love. Is that supposed to be enough?
                            D                                  Em
I only wish you weren't my friend. Then I could hurt you in the end.
                          D
I never claimed to be a Saint…
    C                                                           Em
My own was banished long ago / It took the Death of Hope to let you go

[Chorus]
                              D
So Break Yourself Against My Stones
                         Em
And Spit Your Pity In My Soul
                     D
You Never Needed Any Help
                        Em
You Sold Me Out To Save Yourself
                       D
And I Won't Listen To Your Shame
                           Em
You Ran Away - You're All The Same
                   D
Angels Lie To Keep Control…
    C
My Love Was Punished Long Ago
                                     Em D/F#  G G/B C
If You Still Care, Don't Ever Let Me Know         
If you still care, don't ever let me know…
