Tuning:Standard (Capo at 9th fret)

I saw that there already was a tab of this song and it's good but itīs not quite right.
 I'm pretty sure MMJ plays this song with a Capo at the 9th fret.
 It sounds more like the record AND itīs easier to play :)

Over all the choruses, play this little riff:

     E                   A                 B
e|---0----------0-0-4-7--5---------------------4--2--0-----------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Listen to the song for timing



Intro                 D U D    D                         D U D    D
e|--------------------0-0-x----0-------------------------0-0-x----0------------------|
B|--------------------1-1-x----1-------------------------0-0x----0-------------------|
G|--------------------2-2-x----2-------------------------0-0-x----0------------------|

E|-0-0-0-3-----------------------------0-0-0-3----0------0-0-x----2------------------|

                      D U D    D                         D U D    D      D U D    D
e|--------------------0-0-x----0-------------------------0-0-x----0------0-0-x----0--|

E|-0-0-0-3-----------------------------0-0-0-3-----------0-0-x----0------0-0-x----0--|

The rythm is the same as the intro in the first half of the song, but after that,
the jam starts, but i will get to that later.


Verse 1

E 
Sorry bout the things that I had to say 
         A                          B
and I'll make it up to you right now at the penny arcade.
E
In an open car or wherever you are
     A                 B    
push yourself too far and it might get hot.


Pre-chorus

A                                    B               
Well I really don't need the confusion 
        A                        B
and you know I just ain't the type
       A                          B                A                       B
to get all wrapped up in the illusion of doin something that I know ain't right

right right. Right, right???

Chorus

E                                            A
You've got to want to re-arrange and keep it off the record.
B
Off the record.
E                                                  A
You've got to know that we will change and keep it off the record.
B
Off The Record.


After the chorus, you play this:

e|-4-00000--4-00000---5--4-2-0--2--------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------0-0-0-0-2-5------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-4-00000--4-00000---5--4-2-0--2--7-----------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The timing is a little tricky on that riff so listen to the song to hear it.


Verse 2

E
In a crowded room near the box of boom,
      A               B
to an artificial tune, I see you swoon.
E                                                 A
Well you knew all this would turn to mist if your idea wasn't kissed 
B
Why're you so pissed?


Pre-chorus

A                                       B
Well I know you don't need the confusion
      A                           B
and I know you just ain't the type,
       A                          B                 A                       B
to get all wrapped up in the illusion of doin something that you know ain't right

Right Right.

Right Right??? Right Right??? Right Right???


Chorus

 E                                          A
You've got to want to rearrange and keep it off the record.
B
Off the record.
 E                                                 A
You've got to know that we will change and keep it Off The Record.
B
Off The Record.



Over this chorus, play the chorus riff again.

E                                           A
You've got to want to rearrenge and keep it Off The Record.
B
Off The Record 
E                                                  A
You've got to know that we will change and keep it Off The Record.
B
Off The Record come on!


Play the intro again but instead of ending with this:

                      D U D    D      D U D    D             
e|--------------------0-0-x----0------0-0-x----0--|
B|--------------------0-0-x----0------0-0-x----0--|
G|--------------------1-1-x----1------1-1-x----1--|
D|--------------------2-2-x----2------2-2-x----2--|
A|----------0--2------2-2-x----2------2-2-x----2--|
E|--0-0-0-3-----------0-0-x----0------0-0-x----0--|

End with:

    Em   
e|----------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------|
E|--0-0-0-3b-0-0--------------------|

Now the jam starts!

Play the above riff for a while and after that the keyboard comes in
