Song: Slow Dancing In A Burning Room (Live)


Standard Tuning, no capo

This is the live version from "Where the Light Is"

tabbed for one guitar.

* try not to take the tab too literally. its best to play it with your own style.
** you won't be able to play this properly without the video so:
      
           http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32GZ3suxRn4

*** the are alot of bends in this song. you have to watch the video to get them right.

It's not a silly little moment.               It's not the storm before the calm.            
                                                                                         
This is the deep and dying breath.           This love that we've been workin' on.        

Can't seem to hold you like I want to.            But I can feel you in my arms.

Nobodies gonna come and save us.     We've pulled too many false alarms.
