                   Rest Of Years - The National
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: adslam3

A very easy song off of the Virginia EP. If you want the strum pattern 
for the verses then go to the bottom of the tab.

NOTES: This song is mainly power chords (G5, Bb5, and C5). The only time
that you use all the strings are for the prechorus and last chorus

VERSE strum pattern
-Use whatever finger placement of G5, Bb5, and C5 you want.
The same goes for the Gm, Bb, and C.  I can't decide which sounds better.
