Note from Jay V: 
----------------

  I love this song. It's one of my all time favorite Goo songs, next to
  that one called "Two Days In February." (see my tab here on guitartabs.cc
  to learn that one ... also pretty accurate compared to some of the others
  scattered about the Internet.)

  I uploaded this ... I like keeping things complete so you don't have to
  download four different files just to get one song. People have been
  doing certain parts of the tabs a bit wrong. First off, the intro. What I
  got here is, for the most part, the way Johnny plays. Plus, it's easier
  to do. Second, check the pre-chorus section against yours. This part on
  some other tabs just said "something like that" and, well, "something
  like that" just doesn't cut it when you're trying to go for that realism
  thing. Oh yeah. And since no one could figure out (until the release of
  EOAC) what Johnny R sang at the end of the choruses, I put it in here.
  Werd.

  I left everything else alone, 'cuz Mikey and Johnny O seem to have gotten
  the rest of it just fine. Good for them. Go check out WOG. Most of the
  original Goo tabs were stolen from there. Even though some people thought
  it would be cool to rip them and post them as if it were their own, know
  that they truly are from the WOG site, and half these people are just
  plagiarists. Or whatever they're called.

  POWER TO THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE! WOG FOR LIFE!

  Okay. I'm done. Enjoy. And remember, playing a guitar song is a matter of
  preference. If mine don't cut it, do it your own way. Mine more closely
  matches the record, and it's easier to play strings 1 and 2 while keeping
  your fingers on the same frets than sliding your whole hand up, just to
  play something that basically matches the open first two strings. Wow.
  Long intro to the tab. Let's just GET ON WITH IT!

P.S. Know my pet peeve? People who try to take credit for something they didn't
do. Get a life, you people! Go outside, breath some real fresh air for a change,
and don't be a loser! You know my other pet peeve? When I don't know when to
shut my proverbial yapper!
