The Love Song Tab

   
"Love Song"
covered by 311

With the exception of this song and "Amber", i don't care too much for 311.  But they did an 
excellent job remaking this cult classic, and the only other tab on here for "Love Song" seemed 
incomplete. So here.  It isn't 100% accurate, but between this tab and the song itself, you 
should be able to figure it out.

Standard Tuning, no capo required


The rhythm guitar usually strums the following progression:

Am   G   F   G  

Sometimes it alternates the last G chord for a Dsus or Em; it doesn't happen often enough to bear 
repeating again, however.  In typical ska fashion, there's more bass notes in the rhythm than 
anything else, and the trebles are only played on upstrokes.

The lead guitar i've tabbed out:

riff 2
e---5h7h8-8-7-5-7-7-5-----------------
B---------------------8-5vv----5---5--
G-------------------------------------
D-------------------------------------
A-------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------


The solo is a combination of riff 2 and some goofing off on e's 7th and B's 8th frets which is just
subdued enough so that i couldn't tab it with accuracy.  Riffs 1 & 2 show up at regular intervals,
and are easy to pick up.  Usually riff 2 ends with the lead sliding down to the 3rd, then the 1st
fret on the B string.  Other than that, there's not really anything else to the song.  Enjoy.
