311 tabs for Fat chance

Guitar tabs with lyrics

Album:  Music

This is one of my all time favorite 311 tunes.  Most
people dig P-nut's bass lines,
but they overlook the cool guitar stuff that Tim and
Nick do.  So, here's the
guitar tab for Fat Chance.  Hope you enjoy, and e-mail
me with any comments.
Good luck!!!!

Verse (The little lead part is based on an A chord diagramF#F#
pentatonic scale,
if my theory serves me correctly.  This part may not
be exact,
but it's pretty close.  Play it with a wah-wah pedal)

B---------------------------------------------
G---------------------------------------------
D---4-----7-----9-----------------------------
A---4-----7-----9-----------------------------
E---2-----5-----7-----------------------------

For the part when both SA and Nick are singing after
the big breakdown, play the

3rd part of the verse lead part and end it with the
bend that ends the lead fill
before the big breakdown.  The song ends on an open A chord diagramE MajorE
chord, and that's about it.  E-mail
me with any corrections, comments, etc., at
lawrendp@yahoo.com.

By the way,  the symbol ^ means hammer-on or pull-off,
wherever appropriate.  Good luck
once again!!!!
