Lesson notes

Come Out and Play is a widely played single from The Offspring's album "Smash" released in 1994. There's not a whole lot to this song, since 90's alternative rock is very simplistic to play. This lesson is geared towards guitarists that really want to learn The Offspring's riffs and get them down as opposed to learning difficult techniques. This song revolves around shifting power chords, so you'll need to be able to comfortably move your left hand as one unit, keeping the fingering shape solid as you lift up and move across the fretboard. This song is pretty quick, so it's a good chance to practice keeping your timing tight. Aside from these power chord sections, there's some single string melodic licks that break up the simple chord progression. You'll want to emphasize the techniques like sliding and pull offs to make the other sections stand out as well.
