Title: Stray Cat Strut

Before you start ,put the guitar down,
and just listen to song and read along. 
Tabs always make way more sense that way.
Especially on a song like this. Keep in 
mind that some of the sections in my tab
aren't 100% accurate as far as strum pattern
and such due to Brian Setzer(guitar god) 
playing in a loose jazzy fashion. But at 
any rate you should end up with your 
fingers in the right place and get a 
feel for the chords.Ok let's go:



Song starts with just bass and drums.

Guitar= mostly clean w/reverb
