Tuning: Drop A [A-E-A-D-Gb-B]

Standard 4/4 Time

Well this is my first official tab so bare with me on this one.
I think this is one of the best Taproot songs out there and it
took me a while to figure out the right tuning and, hopefully,
the right chords. So tell me what you guys think and send any
comments and/or corrections to me at frzn_drgn@hotmail.com
