TAB:  Crossroads, from the Offspring's self-titled album.

Tabbed by : ilovetoplaywithfire@hotmail.com




This is one of the more difficult Offspring songs.  Once you get the hang
of it, it's easy, but playing the rhythm is very tricky at first.  To figure
out the rhythm, you're simply going to have to listen to the CD, because, it's
weird.  The guitar chords for the most part follow the vocals, but the chord
changes are rapid, so you'll just have to go through it until you think it
sounds right.  This is how I play it, and it sounds right to me, so with
any luck, it will for you.

Key
---
*-PM-* = Palm Mute the notes above the symbol

Intro:  (Do 4x) Play with
|-------1-1-1-------------------1-1-1-------------|
|-3-3-3-------1-----------3-3-3-------1-----3-3-3-|

RIFF 1:

Bass riff 1A (I don't play bass, so I took it out, since it doesn't fit 
with the redone riff 1B.

|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-7-7-7-9-9-9-10-10-10-10-10-10-9-9-9-9-9-9-6-6-6-6-6-6-|
|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-5-5-5-7-7-7--8--8--8--8--8--8-7-7-7-7-7-7-4-4-4-4-4-4-|
|-------------------------------------------------------|

Play Bass riff 1a, then guitar 1b, then bass 1a, then guitar 1b, then verse

Verse: play 2x.  You can either play the full 3-note power chord or just 
the lower two notes - I can't tell exactly what Noodles is playing.
|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-7-10-9-8-7-10-9-7-5---------2-2-2-3-------------------|

|-10p8-10p8-10p8-10p8-------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

Play the chorus, then go to Bridge 1:

Bridge 1:

The bridge is mostly the verse chords, except they all have different
endings.  It's a real pain.

Riff A
|---------------------------------|---------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|---------------------------------------|
|-9-10-9-7---10-9-7-5-5-5-------7-|-9-10-9-7---10-9-7-10----------------7-|
|-9-10-9-7---10-9-7-5-5-5---7-7-7-|-9-10-9-7----------10-pause-10-pause-7-|
|-7--8-7-5----8-7-5-3-3-3---7-7-5-|-7--8-7-5-----------8-------10-------5-|
|---------------------------5-5---|-----------------------------8---------|

Riff B
|----------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------|
|-7-7-7-------------------------10-9---5-5-5-7-|  Play this section x2
|-7-7-7-continue, till-10-10-10-10-9---5-5-5-7-|
|-5-5-5----------------10-10-10--8-7---3-3-3-5-|
|-----------------------8--8--8----------------|

Now play that whole section x2 again with other lyrics

Then go to final part of bridge
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-5-------------3-----------5----------------------3------------------|
|-5-------------3-----------5----------------------3------------------|
|-3-------------1-----------3----------------------1------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

Play riff 1, followed by the verse and chorus, and voila, you're finished!
