About this tab version
Jackson Browne plays this song with the 1st and 6th strings tuned to D. During the chorus and verse, the guitar is simple and cleaning, allowing the piano to play the more complicated notes, but if you want to perform a solo, just play with the same pattern as in the intro. It is important to get the base notes alternating in a rhythm so they can ring on. Was this info helpful? Yes No
