"Lightness" Acoustic
By: Death Cab For Cutie
Tabbed By: eRic mAsseY

Okay, when i heard this version of "lightness" i had to learn to play it. However, i
was not satisfied with any of the versions on any website. So, by ear, i wrote it out.
To actually see and hear the acoustic performance go to MTV.com and watch the (Mtv Live)
Death Cab For Cutie segment. This tab is beyond 100% correct. Enjoy!
