Artist : Headphones / David Bazan
Track : Gas and Matches (Acoustic)

OK first things first, this was tabbed by ear so its near perfect. This is the acoustic 
released on the suicide squeeze album. Its mostly in 7/8 timing, get over it =). I had 
rearrange a few parts for solo guitar but this is how I perform it.

Tuning Drop D!
