Tune guitar down half a step

Play this twice but, the second time leave out the finger picking part.

Db|---2--------6---------7---------6---------6-7-6--------------|
Ab|---2--------6---------7---------6-------4-------4------------|
Eb|-0-0--------4---------5---------4-----5-----------5----------|

Play this twice but, the second time leave out the finger picking part.


Outro: 

There’s two ways you can play the ending, the first way is used more when using 2
guitars. The second way is if your playing with one guitar, it sounds a little
more fuller.

First way:

“Hands Down...”
eb|--4--------5--------7--------7--------| 
Bb|--5--------5--------7--------7--------|
Gb|--6--------6--------9--------8--------|
Db|--6—---—---7--------9--------9--------|
Ab|--4--------7--------7--------9--------|
Eb|--4--------5--------7--------7--------|

Play this all the way until the end of the song.

Second Way.

“Hands Down...”
eb|--4--------5--------0--------0---------| 
Bb|--5--------5--------0--------0---------|
Gb|--6--------6--------1--------8---------|
Db|--6—---—---7--------2--------9---------|
Ab|--4--------7--------2--------9---------|
Eb|--4--------5--------0--------7---------|

Play this all the way until the end of the song.


I’m too busy to write the strumming right now so just figure it out on your
own I guess, its really easy.

Good tab. The ending looks a little better than whaht i have seen because the others didn't sound like the song. This looks fuller to what he really plays.
