See now, when I figure out a song, I always understand where the chords and riffs fit in with the song flow. I usually sing whilst I play. Online tabs are seldom written in such a convenient manner. I wish to urge any tabber out there to hook us all up. Do a lyric search, copy and paste, hook it up.

This is what I've been doing and shall continue to do. I've only done a few so far, but it's rather easy.

Over the years I've searched a given tab, tried to figure it out, and often spent much time, listening to the song, sussing out the writers mistakes, trying to get how it all fits, and sometimes giving up in frustration.


I'll give y'all the most rediculously simple example, of some chords I just synched up with the lyrics a minute ago:


Misfits, dont open till doomsday


E................................................B
Buried beneath the statue, the answer hides
C#............................................G#
Enduring throughout the ages

The transmitter lies
A..................................................E
Once the chambers open the signal will be sent
G............................A...........................B
To another world... far beyond the stars
E..................................C#
Don't open 'til doomsday
A...............................B
Destruction's not far away
E................................C#
Don't open 'til doomsday
A...................................B
You might not like what you find
E.................................C#
Don't open 'til doomsday
A..............................B
Destruction's not far away
E...............................C#
Don't open 'til doomsday
A (palm muted) ................B (palm mute)
You might not like what you find inside


E..........................................B
We were warned of this coming so long ago
C#...........................G#
Immortal secrets... man shouldn't know
A................................E
Entering a realm where we just don't belong
G........................A........................B
We called them and they're coming

Don't open 'til doomsday

Destruction's not far away

Don't open 'til doomsday

You might not like what you find inside

Don't open 'til doomsday

(Inside) Destruction's not far away


(Inside) Don't open 'til doomsday

You might not like what you find

You might not like what you find inside

The chords are widely available online, so are the lyrics. In this case I looked at the chords and on the first try played and sang it right, but usually, it is not so easy. Personally, I will do my best to make things easier for beginners and not so advanced players.


Think about the children, man, the children.

What a strange song... such quick chord changes at the beginning of each phrase!
