                             COME WAKE ME UP - Rascal Flatts
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: collinlangley
E-mail: collinlangley@hotmail.com

I didn't see any tabs for this beautiful piece of music by Rascal Flatts so I decided to 
upload my own. This is my interpretation of the song. The song is in the key of E, but 
I have tabbed it in the key of G. So, if you want to play this song using this 
tab to match the recording, you will have to play with a capo on the 9th fret. 
Personally, I like to play with the capo on the 3rd fret because it suits my voice 
best. The song is in 6/4 timing. Done entirely by ear. Let me know what y'all think of 
the tab. Thanks!

***BIG SUGGESTION***
When playing the intro, verses, and outro, put your middle finger on the B string, 
3rd fret, and put your ring finger on the D string, 4th fret. These finger stay planted!

Chords used are found at the bottom.
