This is a hilarious song about the real truth why guys learn how to play the guitar. And let's face it. We have all played the part as "the guitar guy at the party" on more than one occasion. Mike Birbiglia claims that he's only using three chords for this song, but after seeing his Comedy Central half-hour special, I counted about five chords. If you want to see the special that this tab is refering to it's: http://www.comedycentral.com/videos/index.jhtml?videoId=91786&title=mike-birbiglia---guitar-guy And, as always, if you have any troubles with the tab, just listen to the song or watch the video that I have given you and it should give you some help on when he strums and lets the chords ring out.
