Tab by Joe Costello (jcostello86@gmail.com)

Since this song was released as a single about 15 years ago, and there's been no complete
version of the song for about that long, I'm finally getting unlazy and tabbing it. 
Complete, with the solo. Yay. Now that I'm done ranting, here's the tab of one of the
greatest songs ever.

Standard tuning: (E A D G B e)


[Intro]
(Clean tone, fade in)
*Lightly palm-mute the notes on the G string
e|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|

A|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|

Riff 1:

G|--2h4--4--4--------|--2h4--4--4--------|-------------------4------|
D|-------------------|-------------------|--------------------------|
A|-------------------|-------------------|--------------------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------|--------------------------|

[Verse]
                   (7x)                 (4x)                                    (3x)

Nice tab, but I think it sounds a little better playing the main riff on the D instead of G. No bashing in any way. Thank you for taking the time for this badass song 💆‍♂️
