More early pretenders punk moments. Dam-ned good song.
I tabbed from the original on PI and the loose in LA dvd.
Think its reasonably accurate. Enjoy!

Okay those are the parts, the order is pretty simple. Work it out.


Obv with some o/d, and light chorus in places (the verse)
i noticed on the dvd that the second part of the solo is played on the middle pickup (ie 
position. The rest of the song is played on the treble pickup (i obviously have too 
time on my hands).
I heard that adam is switching from hollowbodies to teles.


Notes Duration - i removed these from the tab as they made the place look untidy when i 
rhythm chords :p
if you know the song you wont need them, if you dont know it, why are you here?

thats abouts its
