Song: Sadie Hawkins Dance
Band: Relient K
Album: The Anatomy of the Tongue in Cheek
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jordan Lambert
Email: tmacman001@yahoo.com
Tempo: 165 bpm
Tuning: EADGBe
Note: I was looking all over for a good quality tab for Sadie Hawkins Dance,
and I found a few, but I heard some parts in the song that weren't tabbed out.
So I made my own for it. If there are parts or just the whole thing that you
don't understand, please comment about it or email me and we'll clear things up.

Intro: Ok, some tabbers actually recognized that there are two guitar
       parts in the intro, but the parts were wrong, probably because
       it's tough to hear. I tabbed what I heard being played, and it's
       pretty close if not perfect (thanks ryanwood). I divided the intro
       into two parts, clean and distorted, so if I refer to Intro Part 1, 
       you'll know what I mean.

Intro Part 1 *(CLEAN)*
Guitar 1:
    Riff 1A (0:00)       Riff 1B (0:06)

I've never heard the gon, but when I play the intro on the higher rated one, it sounds a lot more 'Reliant K'. So I won't rate it. As I've never heard it.

Peace.
