OK, I'm new to guitar and to me it's hard to stretch my fingers for certain parts of
'California', so I've made a 'beginners version' for people like me.  It sounds great.
The tuning is drop C# but it sounds fine in standard tuning.

  Here it is!

Ok, I posted this years ago when I started playing guitar, and had NO idea how to write a tab. I now have four other tabs (3 Hawk Nelson), and I want to correct something. The Pre-Chorus Part one goes like this...
Pre-chorus (Palm mute=X, optional)

D-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-7-7-7-7---|
A-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-7-7-7-7---| x2
E-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-7-7-7-7---|
X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X---X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X--|
