Monkey Wrench- by Foo Fighters

(tabbed by countertiger_x)
This is in regular tuning (E,B,G,D,A,E)
Intro: here in the intro, I suggest that you only use your index finger for sliding.
(slide on all these notes)

I think what you have to do is slide back and forth.That's what I do.

( you dont have to slide if you dont want. im just tabbing it. its up to you 
how you play it)
Repeat the whole thing about 4 times.

Pre-chorus:

"One in ten...."

You repeat this 3x

Then, for when the guy is starting the rest of the bridge (where he's screaming), 
they just play the part with the verses. Ok, that's all you need to know. hope you 
like my tabs!
