                 DEAR MR. FANTASY - Traffic (Steve Winwood)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:BOBTHEWEAZEL
Email:captain-jesus@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Difficulty: Advanced-If Playing Arpeggios Note For Note
            Intermediate-If Playing Chords Or Your Own Arpeggios

NOTE: Times Are Approximate.

NOTE: There Are A Lot Of 1/4 Bends, So If I Just Put 'b' (eg 5b), Just Bend 
  A Quarter Step. Otherwise, I'll Say Which Note To Bend To.

NOTE: I'm Gonna Tab The Arpeggios In The Intro Only As That Takes Too Damn 
  Long. After That, I'm Just Giving Chords. You Can See From The Intro The 
  Sort Of Stuff He Does.
