Song name: Fire Eye'd Boy
Band name: Broken Social Scene
Album: Self-Titled (Broken Social Scene)


I haven't seen a full tab or correct tab for this song so I thought I should do 
the justice of posting one (My first tab also and all by ear) I'm pretty sure this 
is 100% after lots of corrections. Enjoy!

That's how I play it in Drop D, anyway. But once again man great tab, not trying to bash you or anything I just know how it feels when I get no suggestions on my tabs so I figured I'd just share some of what I've figured out with you. Have a good one dude

Never thought about it being played in Drop D since most of their songs are played in Standard (with a few exceptions with "All My Friends" and "Safety Bricks"). Thanks for the suggestions, I'll try it out.

And might I add "Superconnected" to the non-standard tuning songs.
