Song: The Meaning Of Life
Artist: The Offspring
Album: Ixnay on the Hombre
Tabbed By: Jimmy B.

This is a great song. The bass doesn't follow the guitar exactly, so you have 
to listen quite hard. It took me a while to figure this tab out, but I'm pretty 
sure it's all correct.

b= bend the note
*= let the note ring

Intro

G:-------------------------------------|
D:-----3---33333---55555b5-3-0000-3----|
A:-5555-5-3-----5-5-----------------3--|
E:-------------------------------------|

G:-----------------------------------------------|
D:-----3---33333---55555b5-------------------3---|
A:-5555-5-3-----5-5-------3-11111111-000000----3-|
E:-----------------------------------------------|

G:-------------------------------------|
D:-----3--------3--------3--------3----|
A:-5555-5-3-5555-5-3-5555-5-3-5555-5-3-|
E:-------------------------------------|

Verse x2

G:-----------------------------------------------------|
D:------------2-33333333333----------------------------|
A:-5555555555---------------333333333333-111111-0000-3-|
E:-----------------------------------------------------|

Chorus

G:----------------------------------|
D:-------------------------33333----|
A:-5555555-1111111-3333333-------33-|
E:----------------------------------|

G:----------------------------------|
D:----------------------------------|
A:-5555555-1111111-3333333-00000-33-|
E:----------------------------------|

G:----------------------------------|
D:-------------------------33333----|
A:-5555555-1111111-3333333-------33-|
E:----------------------------------|

G:--------------------------------|
D:------------------------3--3--3-|
A:-11111111111111-3333333---3--3--|
E:--------------------------------|

Then play the first two lines of the intro before the next verse.


Verse again, then chorus, but instead of the last line of the chorus, play this:


G:------------------------------------|
D:--------------------------3---3---3-|
A:-5555555-1111111-3333333----3---3---|
E:------------------------------------|

Then the bridge

G:---------------------|
D:----------------3333-|
A:-5555-1111-3333------|
E:---------------------|

Play that 3 times, then the bridge ends with this:

G:--------------|
D:------3--3--3-|
A:-1*-----3--3--|
E:--------------|

Then play the chorus and then the intro [which is also the outro].

There. As I said, this song rocks, but as the bass doesn't follow the guitar 
during the intro and bridge you have to listen really hard. You shouldn't have 
any problems if you just stick to this tab. Email me at thebabblingshaman@hotmail.com
