Band: Offside or >o-side< , I've seen it written as both
Song: Why
Transcribed by: Daniel Roeth (e-mail daniel-roeth@uiowa.edu)

standard tuning: E,A,D,G,B,E

E|--0-----0----|
B|--0-----0----|

   Strum these chords a few times, listen to the song
   to get the pattern


E|--------------|
B|--------------|
G|----12----12--|
D|-12----12-----|
A|--------------|
E|--------------|
   A couple seconds into the strumming, there is either
   a bass or a second guitar part the hits these notes

   The electric guitar scrapes into an E and slowly
   increases the feedback

   Some of these notes are givin more emphasis than others so just listen
   to the song to figure out how hard to pluck each of these notes.  Also 
   I have stretched the bar out, but this is played sort of fast.

   This is one measure, you play
   these back to back, no pause in between

   this part builds the momentum before he sings 
   "WHYYYY"

E|------3-3-3-x-0--0---0--0---0--0---|

E|--0--------------------------------|
   This is where he sings "WHY". There are x's 
   in the spots where you kinda dampen or mute the chord

   Do this a bunch of times                             do this on the last time

              mute these note slightly

I'm not going to bother with the solo because its pretty horrible.
The song has great potential for a solo but it doesn't really work out.


E|-------------------------------5--5-5-5-5--|
B|-------------------------------5--5-5-5-5--|
G|-----------------------5--5--5-5--5-5-5-5--|
D|--2--2--2-2---2--2-2---5--5--5-5--5-5-5-5--|

E|--0--0--0-0---0--0-0-----------------------|
   So heres the ending...


E|-------6---4/5------------6-5---------|
B|-------6-x-4/5----------x-6-5---------|
G|-------6-x-4/5----------x-6-5---------|
D|---------x--------------x-------2-----|
A|--x-/6----------x-x-/6----------2-----|
E|--x-------------x-x-------------0-----|
   I think this part is played with a slide or 
   the same effect the solo is played in + a lot
   of distortion.
