Choke Tab
Artist: Lagwagon
Song: Choke
Album: Double Plaidinum
Tabbed by: Bo

This song is played 1/2 step down: Eb-Ab-Db-gb-bb-eb
But actually nobody turn his guitar down, so fuck it and play it with standart
tuning.

You'll have to listen to the song several times to get the right timing for the 
pre-chorus and chorus riffs. The rest's quite easy to play.
Enjoy it!!!

About the artist behind Choke Tab:

Lagwagon is an American punk rock/skate punk band originally based in the small town Goleta located just outside Santa Barbara, California. The name "Lagwagon" originally started as the name of a van in which they used to tour. A picture of the Lagwagon can be seen on the backside of the album Trashed. They have released nine albums through Fat Wreck Chords. Lead singer Joey Cape is also in the punk rock cover band Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, the Playing Favorites, and the now defunct Bad Astronaut.

The band went on hiatus around 2000 and reunited in 2002 with a come back album Blaze, which was released in the following year. The group insists that they never broke up, merely taking a brief hiatus with plans to record again. In 2004, Joey released a split acoustic album together with No Use for a Name vocalist Tony Sly, which features acoustic versions of songs by both bands. Their latest album, entitled Resolve, was released on the 1st of November 2005 and is a homage to the life of Derrick Plourde, original drummer for Lagwagon and Bad Astronaut.

Despite earlier reports that Lagwagon would begin work on their next studio album, the band has announced plans to tour Europe in the summer of 2008. Frontman Joey Cape has also been busy working on his first solo album.[5] According to posts on the message board of Lagwagon's official website, it is unlikely that they will make a new album this year, partly due to Cape's solo commitments. [1] [2]

On June 5th, 2008, it was reported in a blog on Fat Wreck Chords' myspace page that Lagwagon were in the studio putting finishing touches on their latest EP release entitled I Think My Older Brother Used To Listen To Lagwagon. The announced date of release is August 19th.
