The Offspring are a band that mainly uses 5th chords, their chord structures have always been colorful and fast. If you are just learning 5th chords you will find offspring songs difficult, when you can comfortably play their songs then you have mastered your 5th chords.
- Intro Riff
The only help I can give you when learning this intro riff is "take it slowly", I have always seen students rush this song and try to get it up to speed, all you are doing is learning your mistakes. If you play the riffs in this song slow enough that you know exactly what the next note is, then you'll learn it at a quicker pace.
- Verse Main Riff
The first riff goes through 3 times, then the 4th time go on to the second part using the 5th chords (G5 as a root 6 and E5 as a root 5). This riff goes throughout most of the song, once again, learn it slowly first.
Strum down on each chord !
- Chorus (part 1)
If you're use to using correct strumming, then you'll strum like this over first two bars, D=Down & U=Up ( D D D DU U UD D ). Because this song is using 5th chords, you generally get a better sound on a distorted 5th chord when you strum down, so it doesn't matter too much if you strum down over every chord, just make sure you get the timing right.
- Chorus (Part 2)
Once again you can strum down on every chord, just listen to your timing.
