About this tab version
Didn't see a good version of this tab, so I decided to tab it out. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Allister - I Want It That Way
(Backstreet Boys cover)
Tabbed by Modesty Shorts


Rhythm isn't perfect but chords sound right to me, listen to the song - it has a bit of a different tempo.
