                             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!

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

Rallentando - gradually slowing tempo
