                             MY FRIEND JOHN - The Fratellis
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Mono

The opener on the new Fratellis album. Hopefully it should be right. There are a couple 
overdubbed guitars in the songs, so I'll put their bits in brackets ().

Really good.

The verse sounds like G C G F to me
Instead of G C F Bb

Other than that it's fine
