Song: "The Hell Song"
Band: Sum 41
Album: "Does This Look Infected?"
Performed by: Deryck Whibley (vocals, rhythm guitar), Dave Baksh (lead
guitar), Jay McCaslin (bass), and Steve Jocz (drums)
Intro, Verses, and Chorus originally tabbed by: Andres Lazo 
Solo originally tabbed by: Rocko 
Altered/Corrected by: Braden 
Comments: I modified parts of the intros, verse, and solo to my liking.
The solo is exactly the way I play it, and it sounds just fine along
with Dave's killer guitar part.  It is missing some very small components
but I find this way is generally easier to play and goes with the song well.
I will mark the parts I made alterations to (no matter how small) with *'s. 
And lastly- thanks to Andres Lazo and Rocko, wherever you are, for doing the 
brunt of the work with this killer song.

Standard tuning- EADGBe 

Guitar 1=Dave "Brownsound" Baksh
Guitar 2=Deryck "Bizzy D" Whibley

the chorus should be the same as the main riff.

Sounds good except for the solo.
I think you are dead on for the chorus.
Good job.
