  Load up on guns and bring your friends.

  Note.- this song doesn't sounds really good without a bass, if you

         don't have one, but another friend has another guitar one can play 

         the guitar part and the other the bass part, which is only this



         during verse, and pre-chorus, and solo I guess

 (5th) A |-------------1--1--1-------------4--4--4----|in the chorus I guess

 (6th) E |---1--1--1-------------4--4--4--------------|the bass plays this

                                                       notes with the same

                                                       rythm as the guitar
