It sounds a little weird but I think it fits. A B-chord you
could probably get away with too.

Well, that was fast!! I have been trying to figure out Debris but it's been tough. I can't wait to try these out!

@DanCrowder - I'm guessing Justin is guitar 3 because in a commentary he talks about how he plays the solo a little out of tune on Debris. I know he also plays Ibanez guitars.

@Carriep63 - Yeah I'm an insanely dedicated Blue October fan and try to figure out their music to the best I can. Debris is definitely a fun song. I spent probably a week or so figuring out the cd.
