The Kids Arent Alright

Animated The Kids Arent Alright tab by The Offspring on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This ActionTab contains all the main elements of the song. Once you can play this, the rest is largely repetition of the riffs here.

The fingering during the intro needs some very fast finger changes. As you can see in the ActionTab, the key to doing this the easy way is to prepare your fingers in the correct positions so you can hit those notes when you need to with the least amount of effort.

The rest of the song is much easier to play. Especially the barre chords - just make sure to follow the rhythm / picking patterns as shown. There is some palm muting involved, except across the chorus, which breaks into open strumming with a slightly different rhythm.

Have fun!!
