---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ACK! - Bowling For Soup ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kotie A. Email: LastRockShow@hotmail.com
Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)
I doubt anyone else will take the time to tab this song out, so I decided to just in case anyone ever needed it. It's a pretty tough song to tab in the sense that Jaret and Gary both use alot of distortion. It may be a little long (sorry about that) but I hope it's good. This is off of Bowling For Soup's first album, "Rock On Honorable Ones", but they haven't really changed their sound since then. This is a pretty good song for beginners (cause it has an easy solo that kind of gives you the feel of how it all works). Sorry for the rambling, just rock on.

NOTE: The rhythm guitar plays a variation of the G5 and A5 power chords in the first part of the solo. At the second part (starting at '4vvv'), the rhythm guitarist plays the verse while the lead plays the solo. That being said, here it is.
