Jenny Was a Friend of Mine
Tabbed by: Pitch Imperfect

\ = slide down
/ = slide up
r = let ring
~ = harmonic

This is an amazing tune in my opinion.  A bit hard at first but you'll get used to it
quick enough.  It may not be exactly the same as how the guy from the Killers plays it
(he might play the Db|-14-16-17 as Gb|-10-11-12) but this is how I play it.
I'm 99% sure this is all good.  Enjoy.
