Artist: The Breeders
Song: Cannonball
Tuning: Standard (KORG Chromatic Tuner CA-30 445Hz)

Third times the charm.
This song is relatively easy.  Listen for the timing on the breaks.
Throw in an extra strum here and there.
This is how I play it, and it rocks!

Bass comes in after :21 seconds.

The chorus is ok but could be a bit better. I'm uploading my own tab for this.

But good overall, 4 stars.
