PS: For my fellow punk rockers out there, everything here is "5" chords save for the Gm -- ya gotsta include the minor 3rd note for it to work, and for all those out there who likeys the acoustic or full chords, do just that. --:), Except make the E's and the B's minor chords. Oh oh oh, and you CAN make the A's or some of the A's Asus's and Aadd9's. Aight? Laterz!

One more thing I forgot to mention, the F# to the G is like a short hammeron-ish chord. It's like playin' a D/F# (D w/ an F# in the bass[line]), and then closing it up into a full G chord. Loox like...D/F#, G. --:) Comprende? Let me know if that's way over any of you's guys heads and I'll work out another explanation. Oh oh oh, also, you can play a D/B (D w/ a B in the bass) for the Bm. This is mostly for the acoustic style peeps, but you can pretty much simplify it to whatever you want. Aight? Well, I do gotta go, now. Shock on!
