We are a country oriented punk band...
Probably not many of those around, so you may have invented a new genre of music. You'll have to come up with a name for it. I suggest "mash-mosh" (Mash for corn whiskey, mosh as in pit.)
We call it "Cow Punk" or "Rock-n-Tonk." Ain't nothing new under the sun, though. Hank Williams III does a lot of good stuff like that, and there is a really cool country scene popping up here in Seattle, which tied in with our grungy past, is coming up with some nifty little bands. Locals like The Fuzz and Shamewreck are doing pretty cool stuff.
What do you guys mean by "color tones"?
As BHD notes, any note above the 5th is a color tone. There are really only two types of chords, triads and 7ths. So any time you see a Zb13 chord, you can cheat a bit and play it as a Zb7, as all 9, 11, and 13's are just 7s with the color tones added. It's a good way to expand your repertoire, as all those songs that looked really complicated become a lot more simple, and you can learn the color chords on your own time.
