Schools Out by: Alice Cooper

This song isn’t hard to play but is very cool given that it is in three 

different keys; the chorus sections are of different length and end with

different chords, and there is a bridge section leading into another bridge 

section. These guys threw out the formula and created a masterpiece, here.

School's been blown to  pieces

Yes its good but it is better if you errase the "F#/G" (guittar playing F# and bass play G) maybee it fits WITH A BASS but if you are alone guittar, its better to take barre F and slide to G.

the F#/G sounds should be replaced with an Eb (or D#)
