JUST WHAT I NEEDED by: The Cars

Tab by: Aaron Meredith

The cars are one of the bands that inspired me to become a musician cuz it wasn't
Rick's good looks that got him that model. Hope this tab helps out!

I give up, I could have sat down with the cars and tabbed this song out with them and still there would be idiots saying, its ok, I guess.
I'm not going to say that this tab is perfect but its better than, OK I guess!
