When You Were Young
Sam's Town (2006)

Tuning: Half step down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb)

/ = slide up
\ = slide down
h = hammer-on


__________________________________________

I tried to include everything so sorry if it's long.

I haven't really included any rhythm but you figure most of it out just by listening...



INTRO:


eb-----10--------|
Bb-----10--------|
Gb------0--------|
Db------7--------|
Ab------8--------|
Eb---------------|


That is the correct opening chord but if you find that awkward to play then this sounds
just as good I think:


eb-----10--------|
Bb-----10--------|
Gb------0--------|
Db-----10--------|
Ab------8--------|
Eb---------------|
