The Milkshake Song
Angry Salad
Album: Bizarre Gardening Accident (or self-titled debut depending on when you were 
introduced to their music).
Transcribed For Acoustic Guitar
By Eric Norcross based on notes by Bob Whelan 
And the acoustic performance for WCYY 94.3.

Listen to the record for the strumming pattern of the intro & chorus (they are the same).  
I added some information at the bottom to give you more insight into how 
this tab came about.  The Movement from G to Em7 to Cadd9 is relatively quick, while 
the D and G that come after this movement has a few strums to them.  
This movement is steady and should dictate the speed and rhythm that the
 vocals in the chorus are delivered.

Special Chords:

Em7: 	 022033
Cadd9:   023033

 Intro:	 G	Em7	Cadd9	   D	   G

G   Em7   Cadd9	       D   	     G
And she gave me, a milkshake and a kiss
G  Em7  Cadd9	D	    G
I don’t need a whole lot more than this


Interlude:	G    Em7	Cadd9	   D 	   G

G			     Cadd9
Take me back in time when I, I didn’t give fuck (darn)
D				 
About what I said or did
G		      		   Cadd9
But when I did it, it was done and nothing more was less
G	   Cadd9	D
Oh yeah, oh yeah


Cadd9		     G
It seems so hard for me to do
Cadd9		   G
To be myself when I’m with you

I’m with you, yeah


G  Em7  Cadd9	       D	      G

G  Em7  Cadd9   D	    G
I don’t need a whole lot more
G   Em7   Cadd9	       D   	     G
And she gave me, a milkshake and a kiss
G  Em7  Cadd9	D	    G
I don’t need a whole lot more than this

G  Em7  Cadd9	D	   G              G  Em7  Cadd9  D   G
I don’t need a whole lot more than this


This chord/tab is based on an e-mail I received from the band back in 2000, 
with instructions on how they performed their acoustic version on the air 
via Portland’s WCYY radio station (could have been WMGX, I don’t really
 remember).  I believe lead vocalist and guitarist Bob Whalen sent it, but 
I don’t have the print out anymore so I’m not positive.
  
I haven’t played guitar in five years, so it took me some time to figure 
this out again. I even resorted to e-mailing the members of the band again
 but got no replies (no surprise, they’re no longer together).  So if you
 guys have any ideas, I can always integrate any corrections later.  
Also, I don’t have the tab for the lead lick, so anyone out there wants 
to give it a shot, by all means!

Some chords are out of place as of 10/21/09, I have submitted a correction, hopefully they won't get "moved" again.

Corrected chord placement has been updated. This tab is good to go.
