Album: Sailing The Seas Of Cheese

Guitar transcribed by CAM.


Like in American Life, this song uses volume alot for the
car sounds. I'll mark increased volume like this: v>
Play along with the song to know when to play verse,

chorus and intro riff. Good luck with the solo!
h =hammer on
p =pull off
b =bend string up
/ =slide up
\ =slide down
v =vibrato
x =muted string strike
w =whammy

For car sounds, increase volume, then use your whammy bar to
decrease the pitch.
