This whole album is primarily simple to play compared to the bass of Dude Ranch.
The bass rarely has its moments where it takes a solo or has a neat line in the
background. Mark uses a lot more eighth notes as back up to the guitar. But, it's
blink so I don't care. They're my favorite band and it's always fun to bust out
some Blink so enjoy this tab.

~if there is a x# on the right of a bar, play that bar only the indicated # of
times then continue on to the next line. If there is no #, then play it once

~I'm not going to put the play order at the end of every song nut I'll put what's
played in each part of each song and if a part is repeated, I will simply put the
part of the song needed to be repeated. (e.g. "Verse"—play the verse as it was played
originally.) I will tell you if there is a change in the section and if you play it
less times or more times than before.

~If I put a (x#) next to the name of the song section, it indicates how many times
you play the entire section of the song, not just one line. If there is no #, then
play the section once
