Author
Artist: McFly
Album: Room on the Third Floor
Song: Not Alone
Guitarists: Danny Jones and Tom Fletcher
Transcribed By: Sophi Garrett (sophi@garrett.co.uk)
Tuning: Standard

===================================================

Many tabs of the Intro neglect the bends, hammer-ons and pull-offs, and also put the
whole tab onto one or two strings. This version is clearer and more accurately
transcribed, and is also easier to play, as it's over four strings in about the same
area of the guitar neck, and that in turn reduces hand movement.
The lead guitar (GUITAR 2) part of this song is played with a slight crunch distortion,
and the rhythm (GUITAR 1) part is acoustic.

And my mind is growing weak, every step I take

Its uncontrollable, now they think I'm fake
