Subject: TAB: Every Little Thing (S)he Does Is Magic - Shawn Colvin


Howdy,
The guitar disappears underneath the string orchestra in much of this
recording, so I'm not 100% sure of some of the tab. Sounds OK though. If
somebody has a recording of Shawn playing it solo (is there one?) thay
might be able to fix it up here and there (please let me know if you
do).
Enjoy,
JK
