                Ok this is another great song by Alcholic Trio
A lot of people got close... and were very detailed
about when to play what on what part of the song and so forth...
I on the other hand, I'm too lazy (I'm sorry I'm just not motivated at
3:47am). So I didn't put in the amount of strums or order of the song.
I mean you gotta sit there and listen to it anyways. So a little more work
for you. I did give you an accurate version though, just spend the time
and apply the tabbing, its worth it for this song.


Intro/Verse: The first half is the actual Intro/Verse. Second half is the 
chord that is played to make the transition to the chorus "Die/Wanted you to know..."

   F#  A  D       E
|--------------|---------------------------------------
|--------------|---------------------------------------
|--------------|---------------------------------------
|--11-----7----|--9------------------------------------
|---9--7--5----|--7------------------------------------
|------5-------|---------------------------------------

NOTE: The second time on the verse Matt Skiba just lets each chord
ring out as opposed to the constant strumming in the 1st and 3rd verses            


Chorus: Ok once again the first half is the actual chorus, the note in
parenthesis is optional. The second half is the transition that goes back
into either the verse or the bridge.

  A   C?   F#  E     A  E
|-----------------|-----------------------------------------------
|-----------------|-----------------------------------------------
|-----------------|-----------------------------------------------
|-7--(11)--11--9--|--7--9\----------------------------------------
|-x---12----9--7--|--5--7\----------------------------------------
|-5----9----------|-----------------------------------------------
                   "a place we'll call the final   
                    resting place in pieces"

NOTE: The A in the transition part is played with stacato dynamics
everytime except for the last time where he just strums it straight.

Bridge: Ok this is the best part of the song. So get animated
if your covering this song with your band or your just sitting
in your room with shades closed by yourself. Alright the first
half is the part where he just lets the chords ring out. Notice
how I put P=pull off or /=slide or x=mute the string or h=hammer on,
in those specific spots. If you sit there and do what I have marked
it should sound just like what matt skiba does on the record. He doesn't let
4 different chords ring out. Just 2 which he'll just slide or pull off or 
hammer on to, to fill in the 4 beats in the 2 measures that it is in... 
just do it. The second half now... The second half is the favorite part
that everyone jams to. Just chopp'em up and look cool doing it.

   D C#? A B?     A  C#? A  B?
|--------------|------------------------------------------
|--------------|------------------------------------------
|--7p6---------|--7--6------------------------------------
|--7-7---7-7---|--7--7---7--7-----------------------------
|--5/4---7px---|--5--4---7--x-----------------------------
|--------5h7---|---------5--7-----------------------------
                            This B is the *** chord that
                            a lot of people have had a hard
                            time with. I'm confident thats correct.


Enjoy
