Yeah.. that's a really skanky song with a bit of hardcore in it.
The Song basically need just 3 Chords for the whole song. Well, it was a bit
hard to tab the shit out 'cause there's no real recorded version of Hedgecore
only live versions on several Albums like '69 Newport or Seedy (1996)
So I just made the tabs for the more or less 'clean' version on the 69' Newport EP...

Intro - Kay, so at the beginning you play a very fast ska-rhythm for 4 times...
Ska-Rhythm: muted death notes (x) are played downstroke and the chords upstroke
After it you switch to the powerchords and play them 4 times too...

|E|| || 5555555 |
Verse - Do nothin' more than play the ska-rhythm through the whole song...

Break - During the break after the second chorus you just play the skanky rhythm along...
| 2x |

|A|| x5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5x55 |
#3Verse - The third verse is a bit different than the other two...
You play the three verses regular with the ska-rhytm and at the last verse
("Annihilating shrubs is what we enjoy") you stop and let the sound fade.
A moment later you just play the chord three times and kick in the chorus...
| Verse |annihilating shrubs is.... |
|e|| ...x5x5~~ 555 |
|B|| ...x6x6~~ 666 |
|G|| ...x7x7~~ 777 |
|D|| ...x7x7~~ 777 |
|A|| ...x5x5~~ 555 |
Order: Intro - Verse - Chorus - Verse - Chorus - Break - Verse - 2xChorus
Yeah.. that's it! The song's just simply awesome! I hope you enjoy to play it...
I just have one thing to say: Play the song hard and fast! Just like Timmy ;)
Just too bad that Hedgecore wasn't released as a record on the Energy LP...
