Candlebox - "Rain"
From their Debut Album (1994)
Standard tuning
tabbed by jjhand for ultimate-guitar.com

For this song have overdrive on your amp and keep the guitar volume low
to keep the sound clean until you get to the faster part. Its an excellent
blues rock song, so please rate or comment. Thanks
