Daughter: written and performed by Pearl Jam
Tab by Anthony Hoover

This song was written about a girl with dyslexia whose mother can't understand the 
disability and thinks her daughter is just being 
rebellious when all the daughter wants is her mother's love.

first time no words 
you guys ready?
Alone... listless... breakfast table in an otherwise empty room
Young girl... violin... center of her own attention
Mother reads aloud child... tries to understand it.. tries to make her proud

I did this all by ear and I know I didn't get the strumming quite right 
but the chords definately sound a lot better to me than they did when 
I tried playing the other tabs. This is a great song and I look forward 
to all comments on how to make it better! Thanks!
