Song Title: Roots Radicals
Artist: Rancid
----------------------------------------------

The verse riff basically follows the guitar with a few exceptions:
Repeat throughout the verses (figure out the sixteenth note rhythms on your own,
these are all just eight notes)

[Verse]

         I started thinkin' . . .
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-0-1-2-3-3-3-3-3-1-0-----------------------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-|
E|---------------------3-1-1-1-1-1-0-1-0-3-3-3-3-1-1-1-1-------------|

[Pre-Chorus]

  With the music execution . . .
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|-----------------1-1-------------2-3-3-3-2-3-3-3-2------------------|

[Chorus]

The coolest bass part of the song
Give 'em the boot, the roots, the radicals   Give em' the boot, you know I'm a radical
G|-----5-2-0----------------------------5-2-0------------------------|
D|-----------2---5--3-2--2-3-5-3-2-0----------2--5--3-2--2-3-5-3-2-0-|
A|-3---------------------------------3-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Give 'em the boot, the roots, the reggae on my stereo
G|-----5-2-0----------------------------5-2-0------------------------|
D|-----------2---5--3-2--2-3-5-3-2-0----------2---5-5-5-5-3-2-0------|
A|-3---------------------------------3---------------------------3---|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

[Bridge]
Another cool riff

  Yeah, Yeah     Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Yeah Yeah . . .           (repeat 3 times)

G|-----------------------------------------------5-5-4-4-2-2-----|
D|------------------------------------2-2-3-3-5--------------5-5-|

E|-1-1-------------1-1-------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------|


That's the riffs of the song. Very easy, but cool to play.
I hope things aren't too messed up, because this is my first tab submission.
I didn't put any measure bars or note values with the tab because, at least
in my case, whem I get a tab off the internet, I'm already familiar with the
song and all that other stuff just makes it harder to read.  This is tab
plain and simple--where to put your fingers on the fretboard so you can play
the song.
So, forget all that other stuff, and enjoy taking the 60 bus!
