Artist: The Offspring
Song Title: Pay The Man
Album title: Americana
Tabbed By: coldfire3 aka AAA aka Matt
Tuning: Standard
Key:
/ = Silde Up
\ = Slide down

Note: I've written the first half of the song for both rhythm and lead.
The second half is pretty much teh same for both.
I've divided the song up into halfs. I'll start with the first half 
obviously, then go on
with the second. Kind of a no brainer there :).

I've added the order of the parts down the bottom. Just incase you need it.

RHYTHM
------

Intro
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D|--9--10--14--13--5-7/9------9--10--14--13--13-13/16-16--9--10--14--13--5-7/9------
A|--7--8---12--11--5-5/7--9---7--8---12--11--11-11/14-14--7--8---12--11--5-5/7--9---
E|------------------------7-----------------------------------------------------7---

B|------------------|
G|------------------|
D|------------------|
A|--7-7--7--7--9----|
E|--5-5--5--5--7----|

^'-*-Drums In-*-'^

This next part will be for the rhythm behind lead intro, as well as the 
rhythm for the verse.
(PART 1)
e|------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--8/9-9-9--9-9-8-8/9-9-9-9--910\9-9-9--9-9--7-7/9-9-9-9--9--|
A|--6/7-7-7--7-7-6-6/7-7-7-7--7-8\7-7-7--7-7--5-5/7-7-7-7--7--|
E|------------------------------------------------------------|

This will play through twice before the lead comes in, and coninue on 
playing until
the last note of the lead, where it will go like this

(PART 2) [distorted]
e|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|----------10--10-10--2---2-2--2--|
D|--7--7-7--10--10-10--2---2-2--2--|
A|--7--7-7--8---8--8---2---2-2--2--|
E|--5--5-5-------------0---0-0--0--|

Remember, start this ON the last note of the lead.
Play it through 3 times, and on the last time only play up to the end of the 
8's.

That's it for the rhythm for now.

Remember to play the second part behind the verse, though.

LEAD
----
The intro to the lead guitar is played after the rhythm has run through the 
second
part of the rhythm work twice.

I'm pretty sure this is all played with your index finger.

That's it! Song over. Finished.
I've compiled a more direct explenation underneath.
I'm sure you can work it out without my explenations, though.
If i've made any mistakes with the order or notes, i'm sure you can correct 
them yourselves.
If you have any queries, comments, flames or death threats [joke],
please direct them to my e-mail address...
