A few notes on this song-

There are 2 versions of this song, the one from Pure
Frosting and the one from the Good Burger soundtrack.
Both are almost the same, with only minor changes.
This is the Pure Frosting version.

Tabbing a presidents song is kind of hard since the
basitar and guitbass they use can essentially function
as both guitars and basses. I have tabbed this as well
as I could using regular 6-string guitars and 4-srting
bass. If the bass is not tabbed, it mostly should just
double the bottom note of the power chords the guitars are
playing. Also, both guitars play the same thing unless otherwise
specified.

Tuning is a 1/2 step down and dropped D.

Have fun! The Costanzo

This parts a bit tricky, I've marked where G2 should play in relationship to G1 with ^'s. Other wise, both guitars could play 8b with 8a filling in the gaps. That may sound confusing, but it just means you play 8b with the open power chord in between where you normally wouldnt be playing anything. Riff 9
