			     MR CLEAN - The Jam
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By : revolving_soul

Tuning: EAGD (standard)

I think it's 99% right, there may be a tiny few frills he does at the section
from 2:01, and the timing there is hard to notate, but basically it's almost
completely correct, I spent ages on this. Quality song.

To be played with a pick. Of course.
