Song: Hanging On By a Thread
Band: The Letter Black
Album: Hanging On By a Thread

The primary reason I made a new tab for this song is because of how the
verses are played. The rest of the song is fairly straight forward but
I tabbed the whole thing anyway. Just listen for the timing and you should
be all set :)

Guitar 1: Lead
Guitar 2: Rhythm
