                      Mac DeMarco - Cooking up something good
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tim van Kester
E-mail:

Tuning: Standard

The album version is played with capo on 3 (or capo on four and guitar tuned 
down one step), live version is played with capo on 4. Tabbed it relative to 
capo so it fits both versions. 
Please post a comment if you have some corrections!
