O My Heart

Tabbed by: Jorando

Alternatively, excellent chords by Kenny Perry to this song can be found here which I
used as reference for the power chords in the chorus and for the lyrics.

I like this way better, except the last note of the intro is not a G, it's a Gb. (Wrong in the original tab too).

Playing the author's way makes it easier to play the Gb on the A string at the 9th fret. This way is easier for the rest, but then you've got to go either up to the 9th fret on A or down to the 4th fret on D.
