The Ice is Getting Thiner - Death Cab For Cutie
Tabbed by Bob Funk

This is tabbed out for two guitars. If you want the bass to play, the notes are the bass notes
of Gtr1. Gtr2 comes in later with some chord arpeggios which i tabbed out as well and wrote in 
the picking pattern. Lyrics are also lined up so you can sing ;)  Enjoy
