Here is a video of a live performance to supplement the tab:


I’m still shocked to see that Davy Knowles hasn’t been tabbed like crazy on this site yet.
He’s a living guitar god and I wish he would get way more recognition, because he’s incredible.
But I hope this tab serves as a rough draft for “Heavy on My Mind”, and that people will try
to refine it, and correct it. And if you’re brave/talented enough, try to tab the solo, 
would be sick.
I hope you enjoy!

I agree man, definitely a great guitarist. Heard about them because of their tour with govt mule. Both fantastic bands, both lacking recognition. Nice tab too, btw
