Nofx - Shower Days tab

Band: NOFX
Song: Showerdays
Album: Ribbed

I have never seen this song (complete and correct) on any tab site so far,
so if you see one on there, then it's mine and someone stole it. This tab
was created for www.ultimate-guitar.com
Another thing, I rule.

Guitar A: Eric Melvin
Guitar B: Steve Kidweiler
b: bend (^: bend up), (^V: bend up, then bring it back down)
p: pull-off
h: hammer-on
*: play while bending
<: Pause
v: vibrato

I put the times for every part and put every part in order.

Intro: Guitars A & B both play first chord then only guitar A playssecond and third chords.(0:03)E-------------------------------------------------------|B-------------------------------------------------------|G-2----------7----------2-------------------------------|D-2----------7----------2-------------------------------|A-0----------5----------0-------------------------------|E-------------------------------------------------------|
I listened to the song on my computer and separated the guitars. They are playing the same riff in the beginning give or take a few different notes. Here's what I got:

Solo: Guitar: B (1:35) The solo is easy. It's in the A pentatonic scale in the big frets, then it's moved to the same spot on the small frets. (To play the extra note when bending, bend the note with your ring finger and and play the extra note with your pinky finger. Then hit the note you were bending, bring it back down, and pull off. Make sure do this when the extra note is being played.)
