Swing Life Away - Rise Against

I afraid to say this tab is 100% correct, because chances are that the band plays it
slightly differently, since you can play it with one or 2 guitars, power chords or open
chords, harmonics or not... but, that being said, the hundred-or-so people I played this
variation for were pretty happy with it. You will be too. Just buy the CD and listen to
the song to get the feel for it.  ENJOY!

Chords used in the song are variations of Em, G, C, D

I strongly suggest buying the CD(it's worth it)and listening to the song to get a feel for the
palm muting, strumming pattern, correct number of strums and  the solo.
