This will be tab number 3 this year after Bayside's Popular Science and PBC's Living
Saints. I really gotta stop doing this lest my schoolwork start suffering. (More so than it
already is)

These guys sure knew how to start another awesome album. There are a lot of little licks
and harmonies that they throw in there. I'll try and call 'em out as we go but I don't
think I'm gonna pick everything out. Just enough to get mad rockin' on this damn sweet 
track. So without further adieu...


Freetime; nice and mellow.

Use your fretting fingers to mute the surrounding strings like a boss.e|----------------------------------------------------------|B|----12-12-12----------------------------------------------|G|----x--x--x---------11---9----8---------3--------4--------|D|----9--9--9---------x----x----x---------4--------2--------|A|----x--x--x---------9----7----6---------2--------2--------|E|----0--0--0-------------------7------------------0--------| "The yel- low line..."
Start adding in the lower E after a few times.e|----------------------------------------------------------|B|----12-12-12----------------------------------------------|G|----x--x--x---------11---9----8---------3--------4--------|D|----9--9--9---------x----x----x---------4--------2--------|A|----x--x--x---------9----7----6---------2--------2--------|E|----0--0--0---------0----0----7---------0--------0--------|
Add this little fill every 3rd time you play this thing. (it's 4 times before it changes.)e|------------------------------------------------------------|B|----12-12-12------------------------------------------------|G|----x--x--x---------11---9----8----6h8----3--------4--------|D|----9--9--9---------x----x----x-----------4--------2--------|A|----x--x--x---------9----7----6-----------2--------2--------|E|----0--0--0---------0----0----7-----------0--------0--------|
Like I mentioned above, after four times, play this. "Off into the sunset..."e|---------------------------------|B|----4------7---------------------|G|----4------8------4------4-------|D|----2------9------4------2-------|A|----2------6------2------2-------|E|------------------2------0-------| I'm still unsure about the third chord in there…
Alright, now play that first riff again four times, Remember to add that hammer-on during the third time, And when you hit the fourth, add this:e|------------------------------------------------------------|B|----12-12-12------------------------------------------------|G|----x--x--x---------11---9----8---------3---------4--4-4-4--|D|----9--9--9---------x----x----x---------4---------2--2-2-2--|A|----x--x--x---------9----7----6---------2---------2--2-2-2--|E|----0--0--0---------0----0----7---------0---------0--0-0-0--|
| |e|------------------------------------------------------------|B|-------------------------------------------------7----------|G|------------------------------------------------------------|D|------------------------------------------/6--4-------------|A|------------------------------------------------------------|E|------------------------------------------------------------| Strum that last E5 chord a few more times before changing it up.
Then: "...a little more lasting than shame"e|------------------------------------------------|B|----4-----------7-------------------------------|G|----4-----------8-----------4-----------4-------|D|----2-----------9-----------4-----------2-------|A|----2-----------6-----------2-----------2-------|E|----------------------------2-----------0-------|
| |e|------------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------4---------|G|------------------------------4-6-4-6-----------|D|------------------------------------------------|A|------------------------------------------------|E|------------------------------------------------| Oh yeah! Now let that shit feedback and get ready to punch it.
You'll need multiple guitars for the full effect..
"OH!" B5 F#5e|--------------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------------------|G|----8--------8--------8---------------------------|D|----x--------x--------x-----9----9----4----4------|A|----6--------6--------6-----9----9----4----4------|E|-------0--0-----0--0-----0--7----7----2----2------| Feel free add in the E octave a fret up from that Eb on the A string.

Now do a heart-rockin' guitar solo!
Continue playing that sweet riff underneath. (I'll tab a little harmony for those playing it solo.)e|--------------------------------------------------|B|----7--------7--------7---------------------------|G|----8--------8--------8---------------------------|D|----x--------x--------x-----9----9----4----4------|A|----6--------6--------6-----9----9----4----4------|E|-------0--0-----0--0-----0--7----7----2----2------|

There you have it! Wicked awesome song and one great new album from one of my favourite bands. I've already got my tickets to see them in October and I can't hardly wait. Thanks again for reading and rocking along. Yours truly, Jason And just cause it leads into the next song...

Next time around play a F#5 instead of the E. Then kick it. PBC rules.
