Song: Going Away to College
Artist: Blink 182
Tabbed by: Andrew (kraftkid87@hotmail.com)
CAPO ON 2ND FRET
I downloaded a live performance of this song, and Tom uses a capo on the second fret. Period.
All notes relative to capo-----i.e, what the tab says is 6 is really 8 on the guitar,
but it’s six in relation to the capo….
