-From now on I'm only going to write
the chords without strumming patterns.
I'll include key words in the lyrics
so you know when to change chords, though.

Time    Ease    Pain

[Prechorus]
-No, this isn't actually how you get that
"screech" sound. On the record, Billy used
a shitty guitar he bought for $50 and whenever
he stopped playing it, it would make that sound.
This just something that SOUNDS like the sound.
Another good place to play the harmonics is
just after the 3rd fret, but it's really hard
on the ears. P.S: make use of a whammy bar.

Then out of nowhere the 12-string comes in
and plays the verse chords before the distorted
electrics come back in and play the 3 thickest
strings over and over again before playing:

Built on an inaccurate and incomplete tab i found somewhere on the internet- once i had found out the tuning it wasn't that hard to just listen and play.
