Wheat Kings, The Tragically Hip
From FULLY COMPLETELY, 1992

Tabbed by Duncan Koerber 

This the second acoustic guitar tab ONLY. The first acoustic plays the
chords I've listed above the tab. An electric guitar comes into the
song halfway through but I have no inclination to tab that.

Remember, in this song the guitar I have tabbed is in the right channel,
while the electric guitar and the first guitar are on the left channel.
When listening to BOTH channels (which I'm sure you will do), some of the
parts I've tabbed won't be as obvious or very clear. Keep that in mind
if you think you see sections that need corrections. :)

The notes all sound right, but I think you have some pull-offs in the wrong places (e.g. there are some spots where you don't have one marked and there should be, and some where you did write one in where there isn't one. If that makes any sense.)
