Song:           The Best Of Me (Acoustic Version)
Artist:         The Starting Line
Tab By:         Mike Legacy [mike@crashingthroughbliss.com]

Always loved this song. Did this by ear, see anything wrong? E-mail me, MikeTheLegacy@gmail.com.

I set this song as Intermediate because of the picking sequences, the verse picking is 
fast and very wierd when you first play it, keep going at it, you'll get it. Chords are 
easy, which makes this song comfortable and great to play!

I saw the other versions of this, and i think my verse is correct, sounds to be, more so 
their's at least.

O, and on the verse picking parts, the slides can be added or not, sounds fine either way.

I'm 99% sure this is correct, most of it that is. So many picking styles sound so 
when you play them, its almost impossible to tell without authentic tabs.

|------------------------------------|
|  ! = let ring                      |
|  ~ = check song for strum pattern  |
|      (normally means "let ring" so |
|       make sure to pay attention.) |
|  / = slide                         |

this is sort of the "Outro" im adding the lyrics along, because it's a lot of different 
sequences. Pretty simple picking though.

Guitar 1 & 2:   (Again ! means to "Let Ring")

    We turn our music down, and we whisper. Were sitting on the ground,
e|--0!-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--0!-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--2!------------------------------2---------------------4------------|
D|--4!--------------------------2---------------------4----------------|
A|--4!----------------------0---------------------2--------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

    and we whisper.
e|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|----------2--------|
D|------2------------|
A|--0----------------|
E|-------------------|


That ends the guitar playing together. They then split apart and guitar one plays the 
thing you just heard, but guitar 2 plays this:

Guitar 2:

    We Turn our music down, we're sitting on the ground
e|--------0------------------------0--------------------|
B|-----0-----0------0-----------0-----0-----0-----0-----|
G|--9-----------9------------9-----------9-----9--------|
D|------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------|


    And next time im around, we  will  kiss  girl ..................
e|--------0------------------------0--------------------|
B|-----0-----0------0-----------0-----0-----0-----0-----|
G|--9-----------9------------9-----------9-----9--------|
D|------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------|

                             we  will  kiss  girl...
e|--------0------------------------0--------------0-----|
B|-----0-----0------0-----------0-----0-----0-----0-----|
G|--9-----------9------------9-----------9-----9--------|
D|------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------|


remember, guitar 1 was playing the other part the whole time, guitar 2 isn't a solo 
there, listen to the song, it sounds right, Happy Playing!
