Well, I just taught myself how to play the guitar like a year ago. So I can play any easy Offspring powerchord song. When it comes to solos though, there's no way in hell I can do any of that stuff haha. I'm no "Offspring shredder".

And Vocabulary.

I believe you're looking for the word 'except'.

How did you manage to learn all of it? I'd love to hear you play a cover, you sound good.

I can play the chorus of Hit That on the keyboard and bits and peices of Pretty Fly For A White Guy, also on keyboard. I can also play the same parts of Hit That and Pretty Fly on the recorder. I rock! I want to learn guitar though, I'm left handed though so there might be some difficulties.

Well, I play the guitar (Ibanez RG470) and the drums, and I can play a whole lot of The Offspring songs, but I can't be bothered thinking and writing which ones. There are a few off every album though (the first two albums on the guitar though, not the drums).

when you guys leran the songs, do you learn them practically note for note or just enough to get by?!
i felt this shouldn't go ignored...

i personally can't stand to play something unless i know them completly note for note. so my list of offspring songs is fairly limited because i can't pick out anything by ear and most of the people who make tabs can't either.

i play guitar (epiphone SG)
i can play:
Dirty Magic (both riffs),
TKAA (except for the solo cause in the tab i have, its totally fucked),
Burn It Up (first one i learned),
Beheaded,
Defy You,
i wanna be sedated (if i can count this as the offspring, though i do play it quick like they do)
Pretty Fly (still have trouble with this one sometimes, idky),
Can't Repeat,
and The End Of The Line

Dirty Magic is my personal favorite to play, especially on acoustic, and its the one i do the best. i almost always play the riff that noodles plays and i always do the the vocals for it too (took me a bit of effort to be able to do these two at the same time, now i don't even think about it). i can sing with everything except the last three cause they are my least practiced.

i know it doesn't seem like i play much, with the way i brag 'bout my 'mad skills' and all, but i play a lot of other songs/genres/bands so my learning is not very focused as of yet. plus i've been writing a lot of stuff lately too, only partial songs though. i will finish them, as soon as i get a new set of strings.

...i need to learn more offspring tunes...

Hey dude TKAA is not a song thats should be taking you a month to learn. Maybe it was like the first song you learnt but, American:thealbum, is more realisticaly a months worth of guitar learning...more or less.
