Between the Bars
Elliott Smith


Track 1
When he plays this in the original recording, he's tuned his guitar down a whole step on
string. Don't let it throw you as it's really quite easy otherwise. I've tabbed it all
the first verse and chorus. The rest follows suit. Of course I recommend not taking the 
too literally. If you listen to it the timing is pretty obvious. Also I tabbed
is 3/4 @ 135 because 4/4 @ 45 was too slow IMO. On a side note, I recommend picking up 
Estring of the F with your thumb unless it's barred. Enjoy!

Friggin' supreme

I would only change the EM to EM7, and where you go from C to G, put an E instead of the G on the first string.

Otherwise, it is great.
