This is a tab I made for Cassie Steele's song "Pretend" on youtube. If you were looking
for something a little more simplified, check out the chord tab I made for this song.

Standard Tuning: EADGBe

Note: When you see D4, that actually means Dsus4 [xx0233], but I shortened it to make it
fit. Em7 is [020033]. d = strum down, u = strum up, I only included this in the areas I
thought needed it. / = slide up. I tried to match the lyrics with the tab as best as I 
could. Follow along with the video on youtube, it'll make it a lot easier.

Also, I never figured out one part of the song, and that's around the 0:15-0:16 mark.
Literally just one second.
