Richie Kotzen - Acoustic Cuts entirely tabbed out!

Tabbed over 4 days in April 07 by Mike Luard (mikeluard@hotmail.com)

Track listing:

1. 	Change
2. 	What Is
3.	High
4. 	Don't Ask
5. 	Where Did Our Love Go
6.	Rust
7.	I Would
8.	You Got A Fire
9.	Don't Wanna Lie
10. 	Let's Say Goodbye
11. 	Stand (Japan Bonus Track)

Throughout this tab I write out the chords in a way that some people might
find confusing, I'll just give a quick example which hopefully explains it.

- 1 bar of C is shown like this

	C/// |

- 2 beats of C and then 2 beats of Dm are shown like this:

	C/Dm/ |

- A 4 bar progression being repeated twice would be shown like this:

	C/// | Dm/// | Em/// | F/// | x2 |
