Philosophy of the World
Written by The Shaggs
Transcribed, and rewritten by Nick Rineholt

The Philosophy of life is an amazing song, it was quite horrible the first time I heard
but after about the 3rd time, I started to like it. It’s a rather silly song, but has
of the best lyrics “You’re never gonna please, anybody, in this world”. I could only
one Shaggs guitar tab on the whole entire internet, so I took it upon myself to tab this
By no means is it a perfect tab, it is nearly impossible to tab exactly what they are
since most of the time they’re not playing real chords… and their instruments aren’t
tuned, so what I have here is what I think sounds nice. The riffs are just a small base 
the mess that is actually being played, so if you want the authentic sound, feel
to strum more than just one string when playing them. The instruments and equipment
used cannot be found anywhere outside a vintage store, so distortion (or at least the right
of gain) is needed. There’s a completely different riff starting with “oh the girls with 
hair…” I’ll tab it sometime… but you can just squeeze the 1st two riffs in there
then.
