Justin King - Knock On Wood

For all you Justin King fans out there, I finally obtained a legit version of Knock On 
tabs... i was surprised no one put em on any mainstream tab site sooner, but I guess i 
the first to realize it...

well here is second of three versions of this tab, I personally think this one is the 
as far as understanding how the tab works...

well enjoy, and if you have any questions email me at cant_touch_this13579@yahoo.com

-thanks

This will bend the neck forward detuning the strings to give it a lower pitch
