Alohaaa:shaka:

Ok so like i can easily play the chords in the verses (Am,F,Am,F,G) and choruses (C,G,Am,F,G),but its the three solos in the video -

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WW7eEo0rfk

the last two i usually just bar the frets but the first one is alot harder than that lol
and yeah if anyone could give me the actual tabs it would be helpful for me and my band.

Byeeeeeeeeee!
Mike :)

the thing is, is that the solos Aldrine uses isnt always the same, at least thats what he mentioned to me. i have tried to just see how he played his solos, but i couldnt make them out.

Here's how I play it:

Code:
Beginning (no singing) intro:
Bm(4222) A(6454) Bm(4222) G(0232) A(2100)

Verse:
Bm(4222) A(2100) Bm(4222) G(0232) A(2100)

Chorus:
D(3330) A(2100) Bm(4222) G(0232) A(2100)

Strumming Pattern for entire song:
Bm                   A                   Bm                  G       A
down-up-chunk-up -- down-up-chunk-up -- down-up-chunk-up -- down -- down

You're not allowed to play this song until you've actually tried a Vegemite sandwich. (I grew up on them.)

hey guys

i play this in Bm as well

is even easier if you go
Bm A Bm G A
2 4 2 2 4
2 5 2 3 5
2 4 2 2 4
4 6 4 4 6

so the BM to G change is just one finger and the G to A is really a slide down the neck

tend top play the 1st A and 2nd Bm with upstrums too.

just my 2 cents

having a running battle with the missus at the mo in the kitchen, she keeps buying vegemite whereas i am a staunch Marmite man (so to speak..)

marmite is a clear winner imho

aussie view

hehe heard wrong man. best thing on bread or toast ever. u might think im bias cause im aussie but try slapping some of that stuff on with avocado on fresh bread and its easy and dilicious. but then again ive grown up on it so maybe you just need to get used it to be able to love it
