Song: The Government Totally Sucks
Artist: Tenacious D
Album: The Pick of Destiny
Tabbed by: _Jacco

My first tab, hope you like it ;) I tried to be very precisely with the rythm. 
one single beat is

represented by 4 dashes or, of course, fret numbers.


Ok, the first part, chords:

E   - (022100)
A   - (577600)
G   - (355400)
F#  - (244300)

         E                                 A      G          F#G F#E

You can repeat this riff (4x), but Kyle is playing some small variations:
