Fireflies - Owl City
Tabbed by: NICK BROPHY
Email: nick.brophy@gmail.com
Please listen to my tunes @
myspace.com/nickbrophy
For a video tutorial, please visit: youtube.com/nickbrophymusic
Tips:  Use a heavy delay.  I use the Line 6 DL-4 and set the mix to a little over 12:00. 
roll back your tone knob(s) on your guitar to get the muffled synth-ish tone.  It's the 
part, but on guitar!
Tuning: Standard
