"The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World
Tab by Jay Bartholomew

Play the Intro riff for all the verses.  I put chords in the verse
just to show when the key changes occur in the Intro riff.  You can
also just play the chords muted in the verse and it'll sound okay.
For the exact playing, use the tab though.  Try pressing down on the
actual metal fret bar for a good mute sound.

For someone else.
