The first track from When The Angels Make Contact
tabbed by Steve Degen
IMPORTANT-this song is tuned a whole step down plus your low E 
should be tuned down 2 steps to c so that it sounds like a drop D 
tuning

e tunes to d     if you dont have a capable tuner..put a capo on the 
b tunes to a     2nd fret and tune to standard..this will take care
g tunes to f     of the whole step down. Then put the capo on the 4th
d tunes to c     fret and tune the low E to standard..this will take
a tunes to g     care of the 2 whole steps down
E tunes to c

This song is played with Matt on acoustic and someone else 
playing the electric Riff and Solo. I wrote this tab for just 
an acoustic guitar so the main Riff is different then how it
is actually played..but it sounds just as good if your only
using an acoustic

your on your own for the solo..I usually just play my own thing.
Like I said this tab is meant for acoustic guitar only. Improvise

Wood Stove lights the air, hotter then the devils stare
the full creeks when the ghost goes walking by
Sundown across the land figure out what ya dont understand
A billion leaves fly when the wind blows your mind

the end of the song is just the two main Riffs over and over
I usually choose to play this one because its better for
an Acoustic but you can mix it up
