-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                  We are the World – Michael Jackson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:SamtheMan
Email:georizzo@yahoo.com

Tuning: E A D G B e (standard)

Someone requested this tab because they said there weren’t any 
for this song done with lead phrases rather than chords, so this 
is to fulfill that request. This is the whole song (minus a few 
minute parts at the end) from start to finish for whoever wants it.
The entire song may be finger picked but using a pick should be fine
too, for the most part. If there are any questions, or comments, corrections, email me.
