Poison Tab

(The) Poison - Alkaline Trio
Album: Crimson

Alkaline Trio were my absolute favourite bands a couple of years ago when I bought Good
Mourning but I just got back into them about 4 weeks ago when my girlfriend asked to
borrow it and became addicted to it, in turn forcing me to listein to it over and over
and over but hey I didn't really mind =o) Now about a 6 months into learning guitar and
very little progress I asked her what song I should learn from Crimson and she picked
The Poison but all the tabs I could find had slight errors or no structure and its always
a bastard for beginners who, would primarily be the ones learning this song (or taking
more than 20 minutes to) to figure out the timings and which bits go wherebecause I
remember not too long ago when I couldnt pick out the chords I was playing from tracks
myself.Anyways a nice simple track for beginners, easy chords, sounds great with a load
of distortion (to hide missed chords or mistakes ;) ) and a nice fingering exercise on
the intro. Once you've mastered this one take a look at Holy Smoke by Iron Maiden
(without the solo for beginners) which has some nice fingering practises like this intro
which is also quite a good one to practise two way picking on (meh I forget the technical
name... I'm tempted to say alternate picking =o\ but not too sure but its a good skill to
master as it'll really get your speed up) and some nice easy chords you can play along to.

So here's my 1st tab, I'm pretty sure it's right all appart from the slide and the final
3 lead notes but if they're wrong they still sound good to me.
Anyways for now. Enjoy.

(Note: Blocks of chords played with no gaps between I just always found
it easier to count them off as blocks of four or less, Also the slide at the
end may not be the exact slide but I'm not great at slides and its the closest
I could find)
