Pour Some Sugar On Me - The Maine
-----------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Eric Wagner
Email: wgnr27@aol.com

Tuning: Eb Bb Eb Ab C F or
	   D# A# D# G# C F whichever you like better.

	Ive watched The Maine play this live, and have seen several videos on Youtube,
along with playing over the song myself, and I am pretty sure that this is the tuning
they use for the song.
Theres an open high E string in the solo, and the only way to play it and have it sound
right is to tune to this tuning.
I only know the both guitar parts in a couple spots, but I tabbed it out so that just one
guitarist can play it all the way through the way I do.
Its a really fun song to play over, and its not too hard either.
This is my first tab so bear with me, and good luck!

           P.S.- Ive noticed that with a lot of tabs that its not too easy to find out the
easiest way to play the solos when all you have is the tab,
so Ill try to explain the best way to make it sound like how Jared Monaco plays it.
 Also, at the bottom, Ill include on how to play the song itself.

	Okay, so thats the tab for the song.
Now, Ill try to explain how to play each section.

Intro and Bridge:
	-Lead: Keep your playing hand in one position,
it makes it easier to get the feel for the riff.
Also keep your picking hand in almost the same position when palm-muting,
and when not palm-muting, so that it sounds right.
On the second time that this riff comes up in the sound,
it changes slightly. Just practice both versions of the riff so
that you dont get mixed up while playing the song.
	-Rhythm: Use all down strums and slide the first three times.
On the fourth and final time, go down, down, pause, down, up, and then
 mute the strings right after the last chord.


Verse 1, and 2:
	-Both verses are exactly the same,
the only difference is you palm mute the first four times,
and play regularly the last eight times. Its easiest to play it
 down, down, pause, down, up, down, up.


Pre-Chorus 1, 2, and 3:
	-This part is pretty easy, just remember to mute the strings
with your playing hand instead of with you palm to get the sound.

Chorus 1, 2, and 3:
	-This part is also pretty easy, play down, down, down, pause...
down, down, down, pause... up, down, down, down, pause...
up, down, down, down, pause.
	On the first chorus, you play the 10 chord three times.
After the first one, mute the strings. Then play the next two,
muting after them too.
	On the second chorus, you play it the same, except for at the end,
when you hold the last chord before going into the solo.
	On the third and final chorus, it gets a little more complex.
After the solo,  you play the pre chorus for the final time.
(You can either hold the last note of the solo for a while,
or just go right into the chorus, whichever you want.)
Then, you wait while the whole band sings "Pour, pour, pour, pour..."
and then you come in with the muting. Try playing down, up, down, down...
down, up, down, down... down, up, down, up.
Then play the regular chorus six times. On the seventh just strum
down hard for the 1 chord and the 6 chord and then up, down, down.


Solo:
	I just broke it up into parts, so when you first learn it,
try playing it in the same parts. Remember, as with a lot of solos,
 its best to alternate pick. When I do say to just down pick,
thats when it sounds better and is probably easier that way.
First, place your ring finger on 6 on the B and your pointer on 4 for the E,
even though you dont play the E yet. Then slide up and play the 6 on E,
and make sure to get that dirty sound.
Then slide back down, easy enough.
Second, set your hand up by barring the E, B, and G with your pointer,
and playing the B with your middle finger.
Play down hammer up... down hammer up... down down.
Third, just use your pointed and middle to alternate the two notes.
 I recommend playing all down strokes for this part.
Fourth, just play, hammer, and play, really easy.
Fifth, play the note, bend, release, and play the note for both parts.
Sixth, pay attention here. To get the right sound, before you bend that whole step,
 wait a split second, its extremely important to play this part with the slight pause.
Seventh, just play and hammer like usual, I usually play all down here but you can alternate.
Eighth, obviously you want to alternate pick here.
 Thats all there is to it.
Ninth, pick, hammer, pick, pick... then pick up down for the two mutes.
Do that twice and then just slide up to end the solo.


Alright, thats the song as much as I know it.
Its really fun to play, and pretty easy too.
Good luck!
