All American Rejects tabs @ 911Tabs

I tabbed this for my band. It is tabbed for two guitar parts. Each guitar does some

rhythm and lead. The parts Guitar I plays are the easier ones to play while singing,

the harder ones to play while not singing. Guitar II does everything else. If you have

3 guitarists, you could switch some things up with a 3rd on acoustic, but I have tabbed

it so Guitar I does the acoustic part on a clean electric sound. If you have two

guitarists who don’t sing, you could arrange these parts differently than I did, such

as having one guitarist do all rhythm and the other the lead.

 

<<GUITAR I>>

INTRO—[Can be done by third guitar on acoustic—Nick uses classical with nylon strings

on the track--, but if you only have two guitarists, just use an electric with a clean

sound, unless you can pull off switching guitars in time or playing an acoustic guitar

on a stand while your electric is swung behind you]
