freakparty

loathsome tonight
After listening to the song on youtube from my mobile phone this is what I've come up with.

Intro/chorus
G D Am (Am7) (2x's)
G C

verse
Bm C Bm C D

Chorus
G D Am
C
G D Am
C

Middle
Bm G Bm C Bm G C D

This is pretty close, the sound on my phone isn't very good but I hope this helps.

Let me know if there's something wrong.

i love this song, personally instead of just playing 'Am' in the chorus i just barr the 5th fret playing only the bottom 4 string hammering on and off the seventh fret on 'e' i play it the same way as listed above by everyone else.
i posted a video on youtube showing what i mean

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGUoRG4pc2w

for intro i do this (standard tuning)

-7-7h8p7--5-5h7p5---------7---5--7--7
-8-8-8-8--7-7---7--------5--5---5--5--
-7-7-7-7--7-7---7------5---------------
-----------7----------5-----------------
----------5--------5--------------------
---------------------------------------

i hope i was helpful
