Explosivo   by Tenacious D  
Lyrics and guitar transcribed by JohnnyWu2@hotmail.com ©

notes: This song contains fairly easy chords, learning the rhythm is a bit tough but just listen and play along with it until you get it.  If you disagree with any of the lyrics then just change them yourself, this is the way it sounds to me.

Part I: This is pretty basic barre chord action.  Warning, your hand may start to hurt or cramp by the end of this song.
      
       C5                      G#5           A#5
e------------------------------------------                                                 
b------------------------------------------			           
g---5--5------5-5------------------------			           
d---5--5------5-5-----6--6--6-----8--8   Play twice before singing . 
a---3--3------3-3-----6--6--6-----8--8			            
e-----------------------4--4--4-----6--6			            
Here is the switch up part on that, it comes at the end of each "verse"
       C5                     G#5      G5
e------------------------------------------                                                 
b------------------------------------------			           
g---5--5------5-5------------------------			           
d---5--5------5-5-----6--6----5--5   . 
a---3--3------3-3-----6--6----5--5			            
e-----------------------4--4----3--3

What's the name of my girlfriend? I don't know
C5                                    G#5             A#5
But she's built like the shit, and she's good to go 
C5                           G#5             G5

Schooled by satan!, 
C5                           G#5             A#5      C5

G#5             A#5

Part II: This is a little different but not too difficult.  Its rhythmic so listen to the song for the rhythm.

d--5--5--5--5-----8-8----10---10
a--3--3--3--3-----6-6-----8----8-
e------------------------------------

C5 			      D#5                F5 	
We were the inventors of the cosmic astral code
C5 	 		D#5                         F5 
We've come to blow you away, we've come to blow your nose
C5 		         D#5                                  F5 
We've come to fuckin' blow, we've come to blow the show.
C5 	 	          D#5                      F5 
We've come to fuckin' blow you know it you know it!

(Back to Part I)

C5                                    G#5             A#5
Don't know what it's about but its good to go

(back to part II): just play the chords and the words come in at varied times, the chords get progressively faster until its madness.

I am not one of you
i come from a distance time
I am known as the angel crrrrusher
These pics that I give you 
were molded in satan's cauldron.
Take these pics, they're souvenir satan pics.

Explosivo!

Nice Tab. The only thing you missed is the intro chord strummed once and left to ring.
