This tab is the 100% correct tab of Mat Weddle's acoustic version of Outkast's
"Hey Ya" (as seen on YouTube.com: Hey Ya Acoustic).  It is played in Standard
tuning (EADGBe) with a capo on the 4th fret.

d = downstroke
u = upstroke
h = hammer on

Mat changes up the lyrics a little bit, so listening to him play a few times
to catch most of his alterations.
