Song: The Rest of My Life
Album: Action Pact [2003]
Words and Music by: Sloan
Re-written by: Joey Lavoie [whats_this_dump@hotmail.com]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Played in standard tuning  [low to high: E A D G B E].

*Note: Many parts won't sound right if you don't use PERFECT timing.

**Note: I only put each chord once, if you listen they are played more than
        that. Listen and you'll pick up on where to play them.

***Note: It would've took hours more to type out each part for Patrick, Jay, 
         and the Ghost player [Patrick or Jay overlapping in the studio], so I've
         made this tab only arranged for one guitar.

****Note: Many times in the background you'll hear the Ghost player play the root
          notes of each chord using heavy distortion, so keep your ears open for
          that. 

Chords Used: E, B, A, F#m, G#, C#m
