Life's Been Good - 
Quite Possibly the funniest song ever written                                          

Notation: 
b = 1/2 bend down 
B = full step bend down 
^ = pull off 
/ = slide up 
\ = slide down

*Note: The Slide Licks ARE played with a slide, also, in the song there are two different guitars playing the opening Licks (1,2,3)
and the Slide Licks, so the Slide Licks, the high e (not the low E)is tunned down to a d.
