The Great Escape – Boys Like Girls
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: GooberRocker

Tuning: D A D F# A d

        Alrighty… so the tuning is a lil weird, but this is how you do it, start in standard
drop D it… so it’s DADGBE. You want to do the same thing for the high e string as well.
on the 3rd D string, hold the 4th fret and tune the G string to F#. once there, hold the 
fret on the now F# string and tune the 5th string to match, which will produce A. then
you have the open tuning Boys like Girls uses on most of their songs.


THIS IS TABBED OUT FOR THE RYTHEM GUITAR TO BE PLAYED SOLO… IF YOU WANT THE LEAD PARTS,
ON OTHER TABS OUT THERE, IT’S BOUND TO HAVE THEM. (again requested by youtube peeps, so
u go this is what I play.) also, it’s all by ear, so if there are mistakes well, deal 
it, figure it out n let me know!

(listen to song for timing and strum pattern)
