Artist: Lou Reed
Song: Perfect day
Standard tuning E,A,D,G
Tabbed by Clement Peerens
November 12th 2004
Update November 15th 2004: I just noticed that the version of perfect day I took, isn't
the original version but is performed by several artists, maybe some kind of benefit song or
something
Probably my tab will sound good too on the original song, only the ending will have to
be repeated more.

~ means you have to let the sound go on for a while

It's not bad, it's quite accurate, just a few spacings aren't 100%, but you get the rhythm right when you play it a few times with the song. 4 stars :)
