"Orange Ball of Pain"
Nothing for Juice
The Mountain Goats
Tabbed by Jon A.

The song is almost entirely built on the four measure riff below. Hold down this shape throughout: xx0033, and strum the chord you're holding to
fill out the rest of the measure after you play the two notes that start it. The last two measures of the riff should be played while holding a
full G chord (320033).

Chord names are implied.

The song ends with a quiet cadence to a Cadd9 chord:
