Great song, I hope I've worked it out right. Learn with the recording to get the feel
of the song. This tab has been worked out from Second Solution off The Living End,
which is slightly different to Second Solution on the original EP, but it can still
be used for both.

Not bad not bad, a bit confusing, the layout should be a it clearer, but all up looks pretty close, the solo is a touch out but a very good effort. 4 stars.
