Artist:  Hoobastank
Song:    This is Gonna Hurt
Album:   Fight or Flight
Source:  http://seanceabysstrancer.blogspot.sg/

Tabbed:  Séance [seia:ns] AbyssTrancer
         Tabbed on the 27th Jan 2013


Tuning:  Drop C# [C# G# C# F# A# d#]
Q =      89 - 90 BPM

Gtr 1: Played by Dan Estrin [C# G# C# F# A# d#]
       A guitar a vibrato arm is recommended but not mandatory.
EFX:   Overdrive / Modern Distortion + Boost
       Dan uses the Boss OD-20 Drive Zone twin pedal for the majority of
       his songs, including this. A typical overdrive will usually be
       fine. I used a Boss OD-3 type overdrive when on humbuckers and a
       Mesa Boogie type modern distortion when using single coils [as
       in my video, link above]. Dan also uses a EXR Micro Amp to boost
       his signals for lead playing, I think. I use a Ibanez TS7
       Tubescreamer instead, but any booster should work fine for this.

And you're done!


Tabs wise, this may not be 100% correct/accurate nor would it be the exact
way Dan and/or the band plays it. Unfortunately, there still aren't any
tabs for this song yet, at this current point of time, so I took quite a
while to learn the song by ear, as well as observing how Dan plays in some
concert videos. But I believe this is almost the easiest way I can play it
and it does sound about 99% correct.


Anyway, this is my first tab, for also my first guitar cover video as above.
So I must humbly apologize for any mistakes along the way. I am also not
very familiar with the terms of the techniques used,[such as finger sliding
and the vibrato arm dips], therefore I may not have tabbed them correctly.
Please feel free to leave your comments/corrections and I will try to
improve on them as I go. [but please, vulgarities, swear and other
inappropriate words are not encouraged.] You may refer to my video as per
above link to view how I really played it physically. Sorry for the long
amount of text. Thank you and happy playing!

Pretty much exactly what I came up with when trying to play it working off the other tab on this site. So, yeah, good job, sounds right.

I want to post or [tab]
