Song  : Damned If I do ya, Damned If I Don't (Acoustic)

I tabbed this by watching youtube videos of Zack playing this acoustic
and I am pretty 100% sure that this is how he plays it. Here is a good
video to help you with the strumming and timing of the song:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Cq8eQTxEwk
GUITAR 1 is what Zack plays (what he plays when it is only Zack and
Alex) and GUITAR 2 is the little riff that Jack plays in the MTV Unplugged
version which adds a nice fun sound to the song.
Here is a video to help understand Jacks riff and Into:
