This is one of my all time favorite 311 tunes. Most

people dig P-nut's bass lines,

but they overlook the cool guitar stuff that Tim and

Nick do. So, here's the

guitar tab for Fat Chance. Hope you enjoy, and e-mail

me with any comments.

Good luck!!!!

Intro and main riff (beginning of song starts off with

feedback)

Verse (The little lead part is based on an F#

pentatonic scale,

if my theory serves me correctly. This part may not

be exact,

but it's pretty close. Play it with a wah-wah pedal)

Big Breakdown

E---------------------------------------------

B---------------------------------------------

G---------------------------------------------

D---4-----7-----9-----------------------------

A---4-----7-----9-----------------------------

E---2-----5-----7-----------------------------

For the part when both SA and Nick are singing after

the big breakdown, play the

3rd part of the verse lead part and end it with the

bend that ends the lead fill

before the big breakdown. The song ends on an open E

chord, and that's about it. E-mail

me with any corrections, comments, etc., at

lawrendp@yahoo.com.

By the way, the symbol ^ means hammer-on or pull-off,

wherever appropriate. Good luck

once again!!!!
