Badfish Tab

There's two guitars in this song, the 2nd plays little fills.  This tab is only for one guitar, 
but pretty damn good for one.

INTRO...

k, im sure many of you are like... i know it sounds like hes playing
more than just the chords in the intro.. (the acoustic bit) well he is,
obviously.  here's what i play it osunds 10000X better than just playing
the chords and pretty close to what brad plays.

*****=transitional scratch/mute (listen to the track to try and figure out what i mean)

Okay, for the parts where i've got just single notes played at a time,
the chord is still echoing right? so you're not gonna get a single note
sound it will just be more distinct from the chord which is fading out.
You have to be prettttty fluid to play this and make it sound good, 
but if you wanna learn it this is a great way.  playing only the chords
is an insult to the song it sounds terrible.

I dont really know if my strums are correct, but i just strum it like the track
i didnt know how to write it out exactly, so just LISTEN!

VERSE..

Upbeats of course.  If you can't play upbeats, don't murder this song.
You probly won't strum the low E, maybe not even the A string here, depening
on how ska you're trying to sound.

A   Bm  G   A    X2
5---7---3---5
5---7---3---5
6---7---4---6
7---9---5---7
7---9---5---7
5---7---3---5

A   D   G   A    X1
----5--------
s---7---s---s
a---7---a---a
m---7---m---m  (same=same chord as in the first part of the verse)
e---5---e---e
----x--------

D   A  X3

same chord structure.... yada yada yada

then at the end he plays D then i think he plays a open E chord to end the chorus.



ACOUSIC FILL.  

pretty much same as intro, he picks out less notes on this one though.  



SOLO... (LITTLE RIFF BRAD PLAYS)

i dont even wanna call it a solo, lets call it a little riff brad plays.

E-------------------------------------------|-----------------|-5-------------
B-------------------------------------------|-----------------|---7-----------
G-4h6-4h6-4b5r4-----2-4-1h2p1---------------|--------2p1------|-----6-4-2h4-2-
D---------------2h4-----------4p2-----------|---2h4-1----2-2h4|---------------
A---------------------------------0h2p0-2h4-|-4---------------|---------------
E-------------------------------------------|-----------------|---------------

And that's all the parts of the song.  e-mail me if you need anything
