Motivation  by Sum 41
Guitar tab by Adam Nopants


Hey everybody, I was tired of people leaving out the second guitar in some places and 
the verses wrong, so I decided to write this...this is my first but I'll be working on a 
waiting bass tab soon.

/ -slide
dot under parts of tab -palm mute
~ -let the note ring

Intro    (0:01)
Guitars 1 & 2         right here, the second guitar does a pickslide

Guitar 2

Note: if you play it and it sounds like it clashes a bit, it's ok, it's meant to. play 
lightly behind the rythym guitar.

Guitar 2. This part is hard to hear and get at first, and kind of unnecessary, so leave 
out if you want to. if you don't want to, go ahead. It comes in on the third time the 
part plays. it plays four times with a palm mute, then twice without it.

Last chorus/bridge (2:25)

Guitar one       It's just a strumming pattern so do whatever

A|--2-22--2-22--00000000-22222222---|
E|--0-00----------------------------|


Guitar two     Like that last part, but with a twist at the end...

e|---4-4-4-42-4-4-42-42-------------|
B|---5-5-5-54-5-5-54-54-------------|
