                             Happier Times - Joe Bonamassa
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tim van Kester

This is a tab for the solo's of Joe Bonamassa's 'Happier Times'. There are some
things I have to say first:
- The first notes of the first solo are normally played on the D-string, but
  it gave me a sharper, better tone on the G-string. Joe uses a capo on the 3th
  fret.

- A note about the second solo: I'm still not sure about the last part of the
  5th bar and the first part of the 6th bar. It would have been strange to cut
  it out of the tab, so I tried to tab it anyway.

- I just tried not to chop licks in half, so some bars have some empty space,
  please do not think that you have to wait there or something.

- Forgot to tab it 'relative to the capo'. This is just for playing it
  WITHOUT a capo. Excusez moi.
Feel free to post some comments about mistakes I made :)
