                          WHITE FLAG - The Mayfield Four
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jon (Scarecrow at abb.net)

Tuning: Standard

This is my first tab ever and I tried to be as accurate as possible, although sometimes 
didn't record every repetition of every chord - this tab is more of a guideline. Just 
to get some Mayfield Four tabs in circulation - and isn't this song amazing?!?!

VERSE (OUTRO) - Guitar 1 [4:08] - And that's the song!

My interpretation is just that - an interpretation. There are probably more
layers that I didn't hear, and there are other ways to play this song. Here isanother 
progression for the chorus that sounds nice and would be great for an acoustic version of 
song (although it's not played on the record).
