"Transistor"
Performed by 311
>From the album "Transistor" on Capricorn/Mercury Records
Music by: Chad Sexton
Lyrics by: Nick Hexum and Doug Martinez
(c) 1997 Hydroponic Music BMI
------------
Tabbed by Fred Lidskog 

NOTE: ANOTHER INTERPRETATION OF THIS SONG, AND ONE THAT I NOW THINK IS THE
RIGHT WAY TO PLAY IT, IS TO PLAY ONLY THE NOTES LISTED ON THE LOW "E"
STRING, AND NOT THE ONES ON THE "A" STRING. IN OTHER WORDS, PLAY THE
SINGLE NOTES ON THE "E" STRING INSTEAD OF THE POWER CHORDS LISTED BELOW,
BUT ONLY IN "VERSE RIFFS 1 & 2", "CHORUS RIFF 1", AND "RIFF 3". THE OTHER
RIFFS SHOULD BE PLAYED AS LISTED BELOW.
