Title:  American Woman
Artist: The Guess Who
Album:  The Greatest of the Guess Who
Transcribed by Don Shanty Jr.
Email:  phypower@geocities.com

This was transcribed with one guitar in mind.  But two guitars could be 
easily used since all of the parts of the song are included here.  If you
know the song, you should be able to figure it out, (I hope!).  Hope this is
of use to you.Begining of the Intro:  The first chord sounds like a harmonic, the best I 
can do is form the chord with the left hand, then tap the same shape one 
octave higher, directly on the frets.  There's got to be a better way!
