           POINT OF EXTINCTION ACOUSTIC - Motion City Soundtrack
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: xSledgewick (Patrick Ramser)

Tuning: Standard

My first tab. I saw Stephen's transcription of Broken Heart acoustic that he based off
Justin's Sundance performance and it inspired me. In turn, I figured I'd give this song a
The video can be located at:

If you notice a mistake or have something that should be improved upon, please tell me
I can make this as perfect as possible. Thanks!

============================================================================

Verse Progression - Took me like an hour to get the verse just right because Justin goes
a string for the third progression and I can't see what he changes to. Luckily, he
need to though, you can stick with the top two strings and it sounds just fine. This 
progression is an alteration of Rilo Kiley's 'Picture of Success' after-all.

e|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|----------------------------|
D|----------------------------|
A|---7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7---|    x8
E|--4--4--5--5--7--7--9--9----|

Chorus Progression - This one's easy as hell to see from the video, so there's no
needed really. The only thing I'll tell you is that you need to slide up the fretboard 
on
799 power chord to 244, strum twice real quickly and slide back down. The best example 
that is, of course, in the video.

e|--------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------1---------------9-9-9-9///-4-4-\\\9-9-9-9----------|
D|----7------2---------------9-9-9-9///-4-4-\\\9-9-9-9----------|
A|----7------2---------------7-7-7-7///-2-2-\\\7-7-7-7----------|    x3
E|----5------0--------------------------------------------------|

Part at end of Chorus - After strumming the verse three times, Justin switches it up and
of doing the slide part opts to play some power chords, ending the chorus. I believe
is how it goes, sounds good to me, but there's room for improvement I'm sure.

e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|----6-6-6-6-------9-9-9-9------------------------|
D|----6-6-6-6-------9-9-9-9-------7-7-7-7----------|
A|----4-4-4-4-------7-7-7-7-------7-7-7-7----------|
E|--------------------------------5-5-5-5----------|

Following verses - You can do whatever sounds good to you, but at this point Justin
begin to strum the verse chords instead of pick them (with a palm mute). Like I said, it
doesn't matter, sounds good however you continue the song, as long as you keep the same 
chords.

e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------7-7-7-7-----7-7-7-7-----7-7-7-7-----7-7-7-7--------|    x8
E|--------4-4-4-4-----5-5-5-5-----7-7-7-7-----9-9-9-9--------|
  (*pm)   *******     *******     *******     *******

Bridge - Just pay attention to the video, it's really quite simple (or at least appears
be). Though this part isn't very accurate, I'm pretty sure it's close enough. If you
any suggestions, please post them.

(Bridge - 1st Progression)

e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|---6-6-6-6-6-6----4-4-----9-9-9-9-9-9------------|
D|---6-6-6-6-6-6----4-4-----9-9-9-9-9-9----9-9-----|
A|---4-4-4-4-4-4----2-2-----7-7-7-7-7-7----9-9-----|
E|-----------------------------------------7-7-----|

(Bridge - 2nd Progression)

e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|---6-6-6-6-6-6----4-4----------------------------|
D|---6-6-6-6-6-6----4-4-----7-7-7-7-7-7----6-6-----|
A|---4-4-4-4-4-4----2-2-----7-7-7-7-7-7----6-6-----|
E|--------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5----4-4-----|

(Bridge - Solo)

D|---------------------------------------------5-5-5-----6-6-6----|
A|----4-4-4-4-4-4-----2-2-----5-5-5-5-5-5------3-3-3-----6-6-6----|
E|-------------------------------------------------------4-4-4----|

(Bridge - Solo - End)

e|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|---6-6-6-6-6-6-----4-4-------------|
D|--------------------------------7--|
A|---4-4-4-4-4-4-----2-2----------7--|
E|--------------------------------5--|

Ok, this is actually the end of what you really need to know in the song. The bridge
like I said, isn't very accurate, but if you go by the video and some of my chords for it
understand it. The main thing you need to know about the end of the bridge though is 
ending power chord on 577, it's not one strum. It's Justin strumming all fancy to end the
part. It was easier to put one power chord right there though.

* After you have that down though, the remainder of the song is just a replay of the
and two more times through with the chorus. That's it!

isnt the intro:

7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7
4 4 5 5 7 7 9 9

rather then the way where you have the 7 and the 9 rounf the other way.

or am i just being really dumb?

he plays it a half step down in the video.. the 4's and 7's sound like 3's and 6's.
