Name:  The Lion Sleeps Tonight
Artist:
Tabbed by:  Joel Estes


The intro riff is pretty easy.  It's based off of a minor pentanonic scale.  Really no shocker here, just 
fun to play.
 Feel free to whistle if it floats your boat.

G-------------------------------------------------------------9-|
D---------------------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------|

Alternative to going to 9 on the G string you can go down to 5 on the B

Actually, it's based on the major scale. Not the minor pentatonic.
