                             Sister - Dave Matthews Band
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ryan Venegas
Email: RVenegas2@gmail.com

Tuning: Raised B tuning.  Can also be played in double drop D tuning using a capo on the
fret.

Listen to the song to get a more accurate picking and strumming pattern for chords like
in the chorus.  My own interpretation is at the bottom of the tab which i feel is fairly
 Let notes ring out, especially when hitting a "bass note" before playing chords in the 
and chorus parts.  If you listen to the song you will hear what i am talking about.

Finger 3 is held on string 2 for intro and verse and  fingers 1 and 4 are used for main
hammer ons (0h2h4)

Anyways here's the tab, let me know what you think by leaving me some comments and a rating.
Thanks!

                                                 Rallentando

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


My Interpretation of picking pattern: (e.x. from chorus)

B|-----0----------0-----2----------2-----3----------3-----3----3-----|
G|-----0----------0-----2------2---2-----0------0---0-----4----4-----|etc.

A|-----5--5-------5---4------4---2-----5------5---5-----2----0-------|
D|--/5------5---5------------------------------------------------/5--|

Not all parts of the song have this picking pattern so listen to the song to find out
parts do.

Rallentando - gradually slowing tempo

Nice job on this tab. I've been playing Dave for years, and you did a great job man. I'm not good at making tabs so
keep rolling out those Dave Matthews tabs!
