The Offspring is a pretty cool album.  This song, IMHO is one of the
best from the album.  Of course, most of it is power chords and really
simple to play, but how else can budding young musicians learn to play?  
Besides, I haven't seen this at ftp.nevada.edu, so I figured what the
hey.  Hope you enjoy,

notation: 
/ slide up (first note picked)
\ slide down
g grace note.  Held for a split second, is not counted in the timing.
      (crappy explanation, I know, but I haven't taken music lessons in 
       about five years)
h hammer on (first note picked)
p pull off (first note picked)
t tap (don't pick it, just tap the string real hard)

regular tuning
