No Doubt - Simple Kind Of Life

..From Guitar Player Magazine

(Tony uses his StingRay 5 string)
On the melancholy, mid tempo "Simple kind of life", he covers quite a bit
of the 5's range, using it to heighten the pop tune's mournful sense.
Starting down low on the B string during the verse, Tony leaves room for
the vocals, before sliding up to grab a high octave Cmaj7 chord going into
the chorus. The melodic line solidly outlines the chord tones while pushing
the beat with a rythym that says "rock n' roll". At the end of the line,
Tony backs off the agressive feel with a sliding fill that includes the
plaintive major 7 and 9 scale degrees.
