Avril Lavigne - Complicated (live on Tonight Show)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tabbed by Charles de la Cruz (http://www.comeunglued.com/avril/)
Tuning - Standard (EADGBE)

I'm tabbing out Evan's lead guitar parts just incase people
are curious as to how it's played.

h  = hammer on    
/  = slide up     x = scratch
~  = vibrato      ^ = bend
() = ghost note   v = release bend
