             WE'VE GOT A BIGGER PROBLEM NOW - Dead Kennedys
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Emilym80

From the EP "In God We Trust, Inc."
While this might not be 100% accurate, it sounds
more so than the other tabs. The guitar on this track was
originally played by East Bay Ray.

Tuning:
Intro solo- played in octaves.
e|-12-11-12\11-9-7-9-7-6-4-6--4/6-7\6-9-7-9-12\11-12-14-16-14-14-12-11-12-11|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-9--8--9-\8--6-4-6-4-3-1-3--1/3-4\3-6-4-6-9-\8--9--11-12-11-11-9--8--9--8-|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Verse "last call for alcohol..."
e|-6-6-6--7--6-6-6--9--7-7/9--|
B|-6-6-6--7--6-6-6--9--7-7/9--|
G|-6-6-6--7--6-6-6--9--7-7/9--|
D|-8-8-8--9--8-8-8--11-9-9/11-|
A|----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|
Basic pattern. It has some slight variations with strumming, etc.
Repeat until just after "Still, you made me President".
The time then changes to 3/4 for 2 bars (I believe).

   1-2-3  2-2-3 
e|---------------|
B|-8-8-8--9-9-9--|
G|-8-8-8--9-9-9--|
D|-8-8-8--9-9-9--|
A|---------------|
E|---------------|

Revert back to the chords of the verse section.

It then changes slightly, with the pattern 
sometimes ending on:
e|-12-9--|
B|-12-9--|
G|-12-9--|
D|-14-11-|
A|-------|
E|-------|
The pattern then incorporates this new chord after 
"California. Über Alles."

"YAAAHH!!"
These are the chords used. I haven't put in the strumming
but it repeats like this:
  x8 x6 x1 x1 ending on 
e|-8-9--11-9-----------|
B|-8-9--11-9-----------|
G|-8-9--11-9---6-------|
D|-8-9--11-9---6--4----|
A|-6-7--9--7---4--4----|
E|----------------2----|

"CALIFORNIA!"
                 x6  x6 (repeat)
e|-11-11--11-11--11--8----|
B|-11-11--11-11--11--9----|
G|-12-12--12-12--12--8----|
D|-13-13--13-13--13--10---|
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|

   x8 x3 x2 x1 (repeat sequence)
e|---------------|
B|-8--6----------|
G|-8--6--14--11--|
D|-8--6--14--11--|
A|-6--4--12--9---|
E|---------------|

The next section follows this pattern,
with Ray either comping or changing up the strumming
a bit. This is the order the chords go in, with some slight 
improvisational changes in order here and there.

e|-6--4--12--9---|
B|-6--4--12--9---|
G|-6--4--12--9---|
D|-8--6--14--11--|
A|---------------|
E|---------------|

"WELCOME! TO 1984"
Repeat the second version until "they'll jail your niece"
e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|-8--6---------------|
D|-8--6---------------|
A|-6--4------6-4------|
E|------5-2------5-2--|

"You'll go quietly to boot camp"
Repeat until "California"
This is the chord progression, it follows
the same structure as before.  
e|-6--4---------|
B|-8--6---------|
G|-8--6--14--11-|
D|-8--6--14--11-|
A|-6--4--12--9--|
E|--------------|

Repeat the "California! Über Alles!" section

Ending:
Repeat, then end on VVV that
e|----------------------|
B|-8--6--11--6-------8--|
G|-8--6--11--6-------8--|
D|-8--6--11--6-------8--|
A|-6--4--9---4-------6--|
E|----------------------|

That's it. I'd appreciate if you could rate it
if you can, as this tab took me ages! Thanks.
