Tonic - Precious Little Bird
From their 2010 album 'Tonic'
Capo First Fret on Acoustic (Electric can be Standard)
tabbed by jjhand


This song is tricky because you have to play it with 2 guitars to get the 
right tone, it's not easy to play all notes heard in chords on one guitar.
Have fun and rate/comment.
