Underwhelmed Tab

   
      "jeffnmoe" 
         'Underwhelmed' by Sloan
          from the album Smeared
 
 (Sorry kids; no lyrics included because I don't remember
  'em & I don't have the album anymore).

 chords (from low E to high E)
      A     - x02220
      Asus2 - x02420
      B     - x24442
      E     - 022100
      F#    - 244322
 
 The song starts with a chunky (palm-muted) F#.

 The verse chord progression is F# - Asus2 - B, with
 a slight variation on the F#...

     --2--2--2--2--2---0--0---2--2----
     --2--2--2--2--2---2--2---4--4----
     --3--3--3--3--3---4--4---4--4----
     --4--4--4--2--4---2--2---4--4----
     --4--4--4--2--4---0--0---2--2----
     --2--2--2--2--2------------------
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/sloan/underwhelmed_tab.html ]
 The chorus is A - E - F#. Only variation is an A - B
 progression after the 'i just ate my young' vocal. 

 There are several Chuck Berry-style blues scale slurs
 in F# during some of the verses that go something like
 this:
       -------------2-2-----
       ---4-(5)-4---2-2-----
       ---4-(5)-4-----------
       ---------------------
       ---------------------
       ---------------------

 ..and theres an octave riff at the end similar to this, if
 I remember correctly:

       ----------------------------------
       ----------------------------------
       --11-11-11-11--14--14--16--16-----
       ----------------------------------
       ---9--9--9--9--12--12--14--14-----
       ----------------------------------
