Carolina Low
What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World
Track 8

hey! this is my second tab! the first one didn't go down so 
well, but i know this one is pretty accurate. feel free to correct me!
you play the intro for the whole song and the ending. 
it's pretty simple but definitely worth learning. 
this fantastically creepy song is great, especially when you play it with 
til the water's all long gone. 

this is the main part, and you can strum a bit when you aren't playing 
these notes. just use your thumb and your pointer finger to hit the 
high e and the low e. 

you can use the opening as a key for the whole song, but when i sing to 
it, i like to use what i typed out along with the lyrics.

Lack of knowledge for really anything. This must have been a mistake or this kid honestly doesn't know how to write a guitar tab.
