Artist: Brian Jonestown Massacre
Song: Straight Up and Down
Aka the Boardwalk Empire Intro song

Standard tuning, pretty straight forward and repeats itself often.

Excuse the poor formatting, it's a result of going from TuxGuitar to .txt format

Feel free to mess around on it, as it'll sound good anyway, just keep bending
