                       ACK! - Bowling For Soup
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Kotie A.
Email: LastRockShow@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

I doubt anyone else will take the time to tab this song out, so I decided to
just in case anyone ever needed it. It's a pretty tough song to tab in the
sense that Jaret and Gary both use alot of distortion. It may be a little
long (sorry about that) but I hope it's good. This is off of Bowling For
Soup's first album, "Rock On Honorable Ones", but they haven't really
changed their sound since then. This is a pretty good song for beginners
(cause it has an easy solo that kind of gives you the feel of how it all
works). Sorry for the rambling, just rock on.

NOTE: The rhythm guitar plays a variation of the G5 and A5 power chords in
the first part of the solo. At the second part (starting at '4vvv'), the
rhythm guitarist plays the verse while the lead plays the solo. That being
said, here it is.
