This is the absolute, very first song that my son and I learned on guitar. We adore The Offspring (still do), and this song is so lyrical, haunting and we watched the DVD a gazillion times to see the fingering. We had two guitars and each played a part. We did it pretty damn well, to be frank, and I wish I video taped it. We got into it so much, we went to Lowe's and bought a chain and a small lock to make a necklace like Dexter in the video.
That was, maybe, seven years ago. My son is overwhelmingly versed at guitar now. And I sit here, old and feeling drawn, like Barney Rubble, strumming chords on my ukulele. "Pull the shades, razor blades, it's so tragic...dirty magic", indeed.
