Subject: TAB:Kiss Off by the Violent Femmes

Here is my (I think) semi-decent transcription of Kiss Off by the Violent
Femmes from their debut. If any one has any additions or corrections, please send 'em in.
The only tough thing about this song is that the strumming pattern is a bit
weird. I don't know how to explain it, but play w/ it a bit & you should get
it ....

...back to Am for the "Permanent Record" verse...for the break I usually play
something like Am-C-G-Am-C-G-D-G-D...

I don't worry about being too precise
though, 

I think it probably changes a bit every time they play it. Just wig out
a lot, especially on the last D's, & you'll be fine. For Gordon's 1-10 count,
just come in on an Am gradually until
"Everythingeverythingeverythingeverything!" which is a G. Last chorus is the
same as the 1st, end the song on a Am.

That's it! send complaints, love letters, & useless Femmes info to
