This is probably my favorite Silversun Pickups song, for its gritty
grunge feel to it.  This is also a landmark for me and my guitaring,
for while this is a pretty simple song, I've actually completed my first
entire tab.  I've only been playing guitar for 8 months, mind you.

To get a good sound w/o pedals, I cut the tone to 0 on my guitar, use
the rhythm pickups, and turn the treble and middle values on my amp to
about 3 o'clock (12 o'clock being normal)... it's a pretty sick sound,
and I enjoy playing that way.

Feel free to e-mail me w/ comments.

Tuning: Drop D

UPDATE: (4/17)  Updated the Chorus and a bit of the Solo, also the last
"main" riff, thanks to HappyGilmore899.

UPDATE: (4/23)  So, i bought the Silversun Pickups pack on GHWT, and,
yes, it's fricken awesome... (The drums to this song are so much fun..
If you got it, LEMME DRUM FOR YOU Gamertag = AhrumBSTRD).  BUUUT
apparently there are some random notes during the chorus in the GH
version of this song that I don't hear AT ALL in the album version.
I'm stickin' w/ mine, so ehg.


UPDATE: (4/29)  Hopefully this is the final one.  I'm revising the chorus
a bit, 'cause i've noticed that it's not a full slide, it's more of a
hammer on on the 4th string.  I've been playing it like that for a while
now, so I figure I should update this.

UPDATE: (5/13)  Been playing it more and more and have added a few changes
to verse 2's power chords and finalized the chorus once and for all.  Listen
carefully in the song to hear.

UPDATE: (8/09)  Saw Silversun live at The National here in Richmond, VA... they were
amazing, but I noticed one specific thing during this song that I had different from how he
 Verse 3 (after the solo), instead of fret 10, he jumps up a string.  Updated and fixed 
chorus ending.
