Song Title: The Bird And The Worm
Artist: The Used
Album: Lies For The Liars

In this song, I think you can play it in standard tuning, but since The Used
prefer the Dropped D Tuning (like almost all their songs), it's the tuning I used here. 
up to you whether you use Dropped D or the standard tuning.

Cheers!

Ins.:
	Gtr 1 – Quinn Allman (Lead) - Dropped D Tuning
	Gtr 2 – Extra Guitar (Rhythm)
	Gtr 3 – Extra Guitar
