Notes:
-This symbol ^ located under a staff means that the chord should be accented.
-Bar lines indicate measures of 4/4 time.
-Dots (...) located under any staff are for timing, and indicate where the
 downbeats (1234) fall.
-Where this (2x) is seen above the staff, it's an indication of how many 
 times to play a repeated measure. It applies only to the measures between 
 the repeat symbols, not the whole staff.
-Refer to the recording to hear exactly how the rhythm, palm muting, and 
 accenting of the chords should sound.
-More Girlschool tabs can be found on my tab website. There's a link to 
 the site on my UG Profile Page. (Click on "zerofret" at the top of this
