Better Than Ezra - 'Good'
From the Album 'Deluxe'
Tuning: Standard
tabbed by jjhand, with help from andrewjp123's tab


I saw youtube footage of the band playing this song, so I corrected the 
previous tabs to reflect how its actually played. Singer/Guitarist Kevin 
Griffin has always had great guitar tone & melodic songs so BTE was always
one of my favorites. Please rate/comment.
