Tabber: Dan Benz (DanSumthing@wi.rr.com)
Song: School of Rock

This here's the song played by Jack Black and the kids
at the battle of the bands contest.  I thought the intro was cool,
and it was frickin' easy to figure out, so I tabbed it.

This is an updated version of my last tab of this song, which lacked a chorus part. I
also read the comments I got and I tabbed out both open chord positions and power chord
positions, so use whichever way you think rocks harder. Thank you to those who sent 
in.

I'm not gonna try to tab the two solos in this song, but other than
that, everything you need is here.  Just listen to the song and figure
out which part is played where.
Rock on.
