Worker Bee tab with lyrics by Motion City Soundtrack - Easy chords and tabs for guitar

Motion City Soundtrack – Worker Bee tab

Song: Worker Bee
Artist: Motion City Soundtrack
Album: My Dinosaur Life
Tabbed by: Colonel_Panic

Tuning: 1/2 Step Down (Eb Bb Gb Db Ab Eb)

Notes: Not much to say. Great tune! I have tabbed the rhythm as accurately as possible. 
I haven't tabbed whether notes should ring out or be muted, as you can easily work this 
out by listening to the song. Finally, there is a third guitar which sometimes harmonises 
with the INTERLUDE octave riff – I haven't bothered to tab this part.
