I've seen a few requests for this band, and this is a really easy song
so I thought I'd post it...

Tune (6)=D

Intro: (in the video, it looks like DD's actually playing it on a12-string bass or whatever, but if you're just screwing around with theguitar this sounds OK...)------------------------------------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------------|-0--3--------0--3--1--0--------0-3--------0--6--5\--0-------------------|-0--3--------0--3--1--0--------0-3--------0--6--5\--0-------------------|
Then the guitar fades in as the above fades out, very PM:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------5---6-|-----------------|-----------6---5-|-0-2-3-2-0-2-0-2-|-0-2-3-2-0-5-0-6-|-0-2-3-2-0-2-0-2-|-0-2-3-2-0-6-0-5-|-0-2-3-2-0-2-0-2-|-0-2-3-2-0-5-0-6-|-0-2-3-2-0-2-0-2-|-0-2-3-2-0-6-0-5-|e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e
The riff to end all riffs...-----------------|------------------|-----------------|------------------|-----------------|------------------|-----------------|------------------|-0-------5~~-----|-0-0------5~~-----|-0--/6-3-----6-3-|-0-0-/6-3-----6-3-| q e e q e e e e e e q e e
Then the verse riff: (PM all but the 1/4-notes, I think)--------------------------------------------------------------------|--------------------------------------------------------------------|--------------------------------------------------------------------|--------------------------------------------------------------------|-0-0-3-0-6--5-3-|-0-0-3-0-6-5-3--|-0-0-3-0-6--5-3-|-0-0-3-0-6-5-3-5-|-0-0-3-0-6--5-3-|-0-0-3-0-6-5-3--|-0-0-3-0-6--5-3-|-0-0-3-0-6-5-3-5-| e e e e q e e e e e e e e q e e e e q e e e e e e e e e e
Then the cool riff, the verse, and then the chorus bit:-----------|-------------|-----------|-------------|-----------|-------------|-5---------|-3------2--6-|-5-----0-0-|-3--0-0-2--6-|-5-----0-0-|-3--0-0-2--6-| h. e e q e e q q
Play this once, then the cool riff, then the chorus bit 2x, thenthe riff after the intro, followed by some D5 punches, which continuewith the following over the top...-------------|------------|-------------|------------------|-------------|------------|-------------|------------------|-------------|------------|-------------|------------------|-------------|------------|-------------|-----7------------|-/5~~~~~-3/5-|-5/6-5~~~~~-|-/5~~~~~-3/5-|-6/8---8-7--b8r7~-|-------------|------------|-------------|------------------| h. e e q h. h. e e e e e q e q
Then the solo, which is mostly bends, tapping; basically just adlib in the same key, more or less. I don't know exactly how it goes, but if someone *really* wants it I'll have a go at figuring it out. That's about it. It's a really easy song, but it sounds pretty cool. I'd really like to see more tabs for groups like Overkill on here-- I know a bunch more stuff from Horrorscope which I'll post if anyone's interested, as well as some of the older stuff from The Years Of Decay, Under The Influence, Taking Over, etc. I don't have my guitar with me now, so if anyone has any corrections (or better still, Carcass tabs...), please e-mail them to me...
