Song: Boys Don´t Cry

All the other tabs for this song are awfully wrong, this is 110% correct. So use this.
(If you like only tune down the A and D strings)

I think that you over complicated an easy song.

Okay, why did you say to tune 1 step down if there is no need for it?

The bass follows the guitar chords, no need to overdo it.
