Tab by Justin, for punk rock legend Chris.


Tuning: Standard (Low to High)  E A D G B e
Listen to the CD to correctly play this! You can't get it just
by reading this tab.

At first, I was going to do this in letterized tabs, but it wouldn't be
as easy to understand as the numerical ones, especially for beginners. So
here ya go.  You don't have to worry about me leaving parts out and telling
you to "figure it out".  If you wanted to figure this out you wouldn't be
here, so I tabbed out the ENTIRE song.  Enjoy!

*  - Let ring where indicated by *
PM - Palm mute where indicated by .
b  - Bend up 1/2 step
B  - Bend up 1 full step

If you don't understand any of this, I'll explain at the end.  Guitar pros,
just copy and paste the tabs and save yourself some printer ink.

Guitar solo

During the guitar solo Guitar 1 plays the first part of the chorus twice.  
The first time it's played regularly and the second time it's ended by muting
the last cord after hitting it, pausing, than hitting it and letting it
ring.  Don't be confused.  You've done it already in the song.

Here's the solo for Guitar 2. (Good luck, by the way. I can't even get it 100%)

Almost done! Go through the chorus starting on the second part with
the palm mutes.  End it with these last 2 chords and you're done!

Let ring : Strum chord openly and let all 3 strings ring together for
           a fixed period of time

Palm mute: Place the back of your palm LIGHTLY on the strings near
           the bridge and strum firmly

Bend     : Fret down on the string and bend it down after strumming
           it so it touches the string below it for a full step bend,
           a little bit less for a 1/2 step bend.
