Artist: Sum 41
Song: Thanks for Nothing (Full CD version, not demo / preview)
Instrument: Electric Guitar (Standard tuning)

Tabbed by TJF (TJF@TJFweb.com), December 14 2002

*** For heaps of JRock / JPop tabs, visit TJFweb.com

Notes: Quite a few people tabbed this song off a low quality demo
that they may have found on the Sum 41 website, and as a result,
tabbed the song incorrectly making it sound quite out of tune compared
to the CD version. This is a tab I created from the CD version which
I'm quite certain is 100% correct, however please email me if you
have any corrections.

I also haven't tabbed the exact strumming pattern of the song as
it is very easy to work out if you listen closely. Try to be punk
and play all downstrokes on the chords :D

pm means palm mute all the chords with . underneath

To properly play this live you need 2 guitars.
You don't really need to follow the Guitar 1 / 2 assignments below either,
it's just as a guide.

EDITED: Added a subtle change to the chorus and lowered the intro.
I'm certain it's about 99% correct now.

Yeah you can play it in Drop D tuning if you want, and I'm aware of the fact that most Sum 41 songs are in Drop D tuning. All you need to do is add 2 to each fingering on the E string and you'll have it. It's a little more convenient to play with standard tuning if you look at how the intro riff is played.

I tend to ignore Drop D if I can, but I have to for Finch songs, etc... I just find it more convenient to use the same hand shape for all the chords.
