                 Saturday Night Special - Lynyrd Skynyrd
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Tim (timmy3125)
Email:w8n2ski@wi.rr.com
Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)

What an awesome song this is, there are already some solid tabs out there,
but not of the entire song, end to end. So I decided to do this song end to
end and I hope it helps, rate it if you like it, and enjoy!

INTRO PT 2:
2nd guitar: Lead riff
Bend carefully for the 1st note, it's a little tricky to get the
exact note but the bend is on the 10th up to the note that would
be on the 12th.

CHORUS:"Mr. Saturday Night.." Lots of muting but just these notes.
you can mess with the muting and stuff like that
