--5~-----x~~------           --7--|
--x~-----3~~------           --x--|

End with variations of the intro.

This song is not difficult once you listen to it to figure out the timing. Play it along with it.

Also listen to the John Byrd EP for some sweet variations especially on the intro/outro. 
can figure them out it's a fun song.


Let me know what you think. This is the first tab I ever made.

I really hate the x's. People should stop using them if they don't know what they mean. They mean you put your finger over the string to make it sound scratchy.

Add an 8 to the second string, and change the 7 in the 5th string to an 8 in the 6th string. That's the way it goes.

I hate it when pol can't find better things to do than leave a comment on someone tab, that obviously works note for note, about how they tabbed it out. Think about it...
