Title: I'll Stick Around
Album: Foo Fighters
Transcribed by: Jamie Kral
Standard Tuning

Use the neck pickup (humbucker if you have it) with a decent amount of distortion.
During the verses play a little softer and closer to the bridge of the guitar and
try to make the strums bleed into each other.  Great beginner song if you have someone
to play bass guitar along with you.

It's all power chords, but this is the only correct version of the intro here

It isn't all power chords. If you listen closely to the song you can hear dissonance during the verses.
