ARTIST:    BEN KWELLER
TRACK:     LIZZY
ALBUM:     SHA SHA

STANDARD TUNING: E A D G B E

This song sounds best when finger-picking instead of using a pick so you're
constantly plucking the base notes while moving through the intro.

this is good but the metronome notes on the intro riff are off but it doesn't matter. it's just the timing and the placing.

E|0|
B|0|
G|2|
D|1|
A|2|
E|0|

for B7 (basically an inverted D) it sounds almost right, for a perfect B7 you can either do:

E|2|
B|0|
G|2|
D|1|
A|2|
E|0|

(try having your pinky hold the E)

E|2|
B|4|
G|2|
D|4|
A|2|
E|0|

(bar the second fret)
