Black Flag – Drinking And Driving tab

There are a lot of tabs for this song but many are incorrect.  The track time at each
is listed at each section heading.

*Ginn plays a pentatonic riff in G here and Dez Cadena keeps playing rithym riff from chorus; I usually improvise Ginn's part when I play -and he likely does too- it but I've it pretty close to what it is on the CD. The last part with the pull-offs is also and it is done a few times more than what I've written. Prechorus (0:28) Played three times:
-------------------------------|-------------------------------|-----------2-1-----------------|--2--2-2-2-----2-1-0-----------|---------------------4--4-4----|-------------------------------|
(0:36) The fourth time is a variation of the other three (played three times):
----------------------------------------------------|----------------------------------------------------|-----------2-1--------2-1-------2-1-----------------|--2--2-2-2-----2-1--------1-0-------0-4--4-4-4------|----------------------------------------------------|----------------------------------------------------|
The last four notes from the above section are not played on the third time and the song directly into the chorus again. Then comes another verse with a differing lead riff: Verse (0:15) Played once:
G F C-----------------------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------------------|------------------------------4--3-----------4--3----|----------------555-----------4--3-----------4--3----|---5333333-3333-333-----4--5-----------4--5----------|---3333333-1111------3--------------3----------------|

Ginn starts with some of those bizarre sounds -his trademark- before going into the full I've tabbed there. That's essentially the whole song other than the solo, which I will in a separate file. Email me with any questions.
