Better Than Ezra - "In The Blood"
From the album "Deluxe"
Standard Tuning (EADGBE)
tabbed by jjhand

This is a great 90's alternative rock radio song I used to hear all the time. 
The lead guitar part uses a heavy flanger that makes the notes warble in pitch
and pulse like a tremelo. Kevin Griffin plays well on each guitar track & 
sings a great melody in this one. Please rate/comment!
