		     NO WAY BUT THE HARD WAY - Airbourne
		   From the 2010 album 'NO GUTS. NO GLORY.'
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is Airbourne's first single from their new album. I know that the first chord is 
of odd in this kind of music, but if I get anything different I'll update.

The solo is a little low in the mix, so it's difficult to hear, but I've tried to do my 
I'd say it's probably 75% correct.

Key of E
