Pretty well-written song by these guys.  The verse is actually a
combination of "Holier Than Thou" and "Master of Puppets" by Metallica,
and the hook of the song totally reminds me of "Dammit, I Changed Again"
by The Offspring, and they're both played pretty similarly (hmmmmm).
It sounds like they totally EQ'd his voice or something during
all the high screaming parts.  Ah, The magic of studios.  Anywhoo...

     no need to emphasize the sliding, it's mainly here just for flow


Verse:
At first I thought this was a punk downstroking type of verse, but then
I heard a better quality version of the song and was shocked.  You can add
the octave to the sliding chords if you want, but this sounds fine as is.

You can transpose the above to the 2nd fret of the D string
(rather than the 7th of the A string) for a subtly "sharper"
sound, but IMO, that doesn't seem like the correct place
for a run like this.  This lick is a good pinky exercise. ;)

  This means pick scrape wildly


Repeat chorus 2x, then end the song with:

  2:35

D|--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9------------|

E|-------------------------------|


I can't hear the end of the chorus well enough to know if anything
else is going on there.

Praise?  Hate mail?  Send 'em on over.
