This was a 5 star tab until some jerk came along
and rated it 3 stars. Learn the chords for chrissakes..
don't punish the tabber for something you can't do. KK.

P.S. I removed a few chords because it seems some people
get pissy when they can't play them. Hardly fair for the tabber.
And I'm not the only one it happens to.
It still sounds O.K. but it was better with the other chords. KK.
