Subject: Bad Fish by Sublime

A pretty easy song with an interesting solo by Brad Nowel. This piece is
a classic party song for an instrumental group or friends who know the words.
*** fine song.

G ---4-----6----6----0---------------- this 0 = zero
D ---5-----7----7----0---------------- do this to achieve a hammer on
A ---5-----7----7----0---------------- the first to the 3rd, then slide
E ---3-0h3/5----5----0---------------- to 5, hit the chord once, give it
a quick down stroke, then slide

after this part the song starts over with these lyrics

baby your a big blue whale, rap the reef and all the diomond fails
i swim but i wish i never hurt her, the waters too polluted with germs
i dive deep when its ten feet over head, grab the reef underneath my baby
aint got no quarrels with god, aint got no time to grow old
lord knows im week, wont somebody get me off of this reef.

this time the music slows from the firts transition to the second, and the
mute/ up strokes turns back to the beggining with the full chords
note: some of these chords are manipulated and just finger picked instead of
strummed.
