                             BRIGHT IDEA - ORSON
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Due to popular demand I've spent the last couple of days tabbing 'Bright Idea' by Orson.
a pretty good song, and seeing as my tab to 'No Tomorrow' has gotten good ratings (I
that one under my alt. account d_man2k) I decided to tab their second single. Anyway, I 
you enjoy it. If you like the tab please rate it! And don't forget to leave a comment,

it sounds right.
