Author Notes

Three good buddies learn the hard way that crime don't pay. Based on a true story of a drug deal gone bad, where three naive college students were set up and shot by some shady customers they were trying to buy weed from. One would somehow survive and the killers would end up doing time. The song itself is in my mind unlike anything else in BOC's discography. Very laid back and almost psychedelic in vibe. 
 
I've sat on this custom for a long time because I really hated doing this guitar chart. Two distinct guitar tracks, both of which are often difficult to hear...it wasn't fun. Everything seems to have turned out okay though. I don't currently have a mic, so the vocals haven't been tested. Enjoy!
 
Update 1/29/2020: Many, many thanks to Atruejedi for reworking my vocal track, adding harmonies, adding custom venue stuff, creating the preview video, and for a ton of authoring tips for me going forward. This came out fantastic.

OH MY GOD THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SONGS BY THE BAND SEND ME THE FILES AND I WILL CHECK THE VOCALS AND ADD HARMONIES

Top tier BOC song, and one I'll probably be jamming to often from here on out.  Thanks so much.

Good Choice! I've been hoping to get to this one for ages.
