This is on bass i'm guessing? Well just have the guitarist play a bunch of power chords and play fast and it will probably sound punk.

Don't forget angry lyrics, and you should probably run all around the stage and jump off shit.


TS, could you give us a recording? Perhaps?

Just intro

I dunno maybe you can have the 2 playing together at same time. Then break into power chords.
#6
I dont know looking at what you have sounds like it is a really repetitve song but some power chords and some differnet riffs would help. Mabey have the guitarist drop D and play those chords would sound cool.
#7
Make sure you add melody to the song through the vocals.
the best punk songs have easy enough instrumental parts but the catch is to have good melodic vocals. Its suprisingly easy, just think up a catchy tune to sing to that goes with what you have already and b4 u know it you'll be bigger than greenday.
Wisest is she who knows she does not know.

cheers for the advise it is a bass line and we got the guitarist playing similar over the top in pwer chords. as for lyrics thall be the hard part!

"FUNKY RACKET "
                      by Begin With Simplicity 

   Q  S  S  S S  S S+ S	S  Q   Q    Q
E/--------------------------------------/
B/--------------------------------------/
G/-------------------------7---5--------/
D/---------------5-7--7-7-----------7----/
A/-------5--6-7-------------------------/
E/-5--8---------------------------------/


W - whole note (semibreve)
H - half note (minim)
Q - quarter note (crotchet)
E - 8th note (quaver)
S - 16th note (semiquaver)
T - 32nd note (demisemi quaver)
X - 64th note (hemidemisemi quaver)
? - Fret number not defined (note out of range)

If a dot appears after one of the above then it means that the note is 1.5
times as long, e.g. Q. is 3 8th notes long. Two dots means 1.75 times long.

If a '+' sign appears after a note then that note is tied to (held on to) the
next note.

umm...why would you post your own tab on someone else's thread for their song. Maybe just a link? Well I guess it saved some bandwidth haha
