I saw how other people had their way of playing this song. There were all
very close to getting it right. But I KNOW THE REAL CORRECT WAY TO PLAY
IT!!!!!!!!! hahahahaha!!!!! for reals though. This is the way Mike plays 
it. He uses a Baritone guitar and it's tuned way the hell down. So, if you
got his signature guitar then you have no probs tuning it that far down 
without having the strings go like floppy rubber bands or a fat ladys
excess jello under her arms. Lol. ok without further to do, here it is.
King Of All Excuses. From the Chapter V album.

Warning!!! this song is for advanced players only. you can sprain your
wrist trying to get this right. Trust me. There's a lot of fast sliding
all over the fingerboard.!!!

Tuning: Baritone Guitar- AEADEB (yeah, its really low)
   

      Chords: ( I know this cuz I have a chord chart and I just made it
to the fr. number. And yes, it's like a freakin' universal chord chart.)

^^^ Repeat Three Times ^^^ x3  After the second riff the drums and bass
kick in and then go one more time with that riff.


 Verse 1:
 I'm gonna put the lyrics along with the tab. So you can know when and how
fast you need to go.
 Ok this part is really freakin' fast so keep up with Aarons voice and be 
a step ahead of his rythmn. Meaning, play twice as fast as he's singing.
Plus, if you have a someone singing this song. You gotta sound like uhm,
deep and serious. Suck in air and just let it out with every word.

Yo, I think this is from the tab book...I've seen it in the store and this may be Mike's part...however, they is obviously a 2nd guitar in some parts that is tuned 1/2 step down if my memory serves me right...dude, add the 2nd guitar. That is really what makes the song sound so thick...then I'll rate it a fat 5!
