Pay The Man Tab
Artist: The Offspring
Song Title: Pay The Man
Album title: Americana
Tabbed By: coldfire3 aka AAA aka Matt
Tuning: Standard
Key:
/ = Silde Up
 = Slide down

Note: I've written the first half of the song for both rhythm and lead.
The second half is pretty much teh same for both.
I've divided the song up into halfs. I'll start with the first half 
obviously, then go on
with the second. Kind of a no brainer there :).

I've added the order of the parts down the bottom. Just incase you need it.

RHYTHM

^'-*-Drums In-*-'^

This next part will be for the rhythm behind lead intro, as well as the 
rhythm for the verse.
(PART 1)
e|------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--8/9-9-9--9-9-8-8/9-9-9-9--9109-9-9--9-9--7-7/9-9-9-9--9--|
A|--6/7-7-7--7-7-6-6/7-7-7-7--7-87-7-7--7-7--5-5/7-7-7-7--7--|
E|------------------------------------------------------------|

This will play through twice before the lead comes in, and coninue on 
playing until
the last note of the lead, where it will go like this

(PART 2) [distorted]
e|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|----------10--10-10--2---2-2--2--|
D|--7--7-7--10--10-10--2---2-2--2--|
A|--7--7-7--8---8--8---2---2-2--2--|
E|--5--5-5-------------0---0-0--0--|

Remember, start this ON the last note of the lead.
Play it through 3 times, and on the last time only play up to the end of the 
8's.

That's it for the rhythm for now.

Remember to play the second part behind the verse, though.

LEAD
----
The intro to the lead guitar is played after the rhythm has run through the 
second
part of the rhythm work twice.

I'm pretty sure this is all played with your index finger.

That's it! Song over. Finished.
I've compiled a more direct explenation underneath.
I'm sure you can work it out without my explenations, though.
If i've made any mistakes with the order or notes, i'm sure you can correct 
them yourselves.
If you have any queries, comments, flames or death threats [joke],
please direct them to my e-mail address...

About the artist behind Pay The Man Tab:

The Offspring (sometimes referred to simply as Offspring) are a popular and influential[8] American punk rock band from Garden Grove, California formed in 1984. Since its inception, the band's line-up has included Dexter Holland (lead vocals, guitar), Noodles (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals) and Greg K. (bass, backing vocals). Their current drummer is Pete Parada, formerly of Face to Face and Saves the Day, who has been with the band since 2007.

Since the release of their 1994 album Smash, which is the best-selling independent label album of all time,[9] The Offspring have achieved commercial success over five albums, with singles such as "Come Out and Play", and "Self Esteem". The band's next three albums, Ixnay on the Hombre, Americana and Conspiracy of One, were also successful, reaching platinum certification and gold status respectively.[10][11] Longtime drummer Ron Welty left The Offspring in early 2003, and was replaced by Atom Willard. Later that year, the band released their next album, Splinter, to moderate sales and fairly warm reviews. In 2005, The Offspring released a greatest hits album and toured in support of the compilation. Their next album, titled Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, will be released on June 16, 2008 in Europe and a day later in the United States [12]; it can be streamed for free online, as well.[13]

To date, The Offspring have released eight studio albums, one compilation, four EPs and three DVD's[14], selling over 38 million albums worldwide[9], making them one of the best-selling punk acts of all time.[15] The band is credited, along with fellow California punk bands Green Day and Rancid, with reviving popular interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid-1990s.[16]
