Other than that, I tabbed the song by ear in 3omin. I was going to post on the 10th, but l just didn't have the time to type it all out. The timing and lyrics are probably off, because l tabbed it while l was still so fresh to the songs, but the powerchords are all right. "Armitage Shanks" E Intro...strum the chord about 12 times....

BEut I believe, I'm a walking contradiction. AEnd, l ain't got Dno rightA. Well here it's the entire album (all 32 minutes and 55 seconds) with no mistakes, I hope =). I've only put the chords, if anyone thinks a TAB should be made (with rythms, times the chords are played, etc.) just mail me and I'll make it. Well, contrary to what most people think, I think this album is better than "Dookie" ("Dookie" is more comercial), it's better in ... EVERYTHING!!!!! Well, no more words, here it is. Tune down 1/2 step below standard pitch Chords.- A (x133xx) or (688xxx) (Is up to you to choose one of the B (x255xx) or (799xxx) formations, the one you feel more C (x355xx) or (8-10-10-xxx) comfortable with)

EE(type 2) (x799xx) or (0799xxx) The second one I use it when I palm mute that chord, but using only the (0xxxxx) B(type 2) (xx9-11-12-x) or (x-9-9-11-12-x) Armatage Shanks Intro.-

B Strum a "B" chord then (w/palm muting) strum the higher string several times and fast (7xxxxx) or (2xxxxx), I recomend the first one. Then do the same, but without palm muting; it just sounds a little low (the string, less volume). Verse.-
