Band: American Hi-Fi
Song: Flavor of the Weak (Acoustic)
Tuning: standard EADGBE (Capo on the 1st Fret)

Alright, I could never find a transcription of the acoustic version of this song, so I've 
finally gotten fed up enough to tab it myself, b/c I think it's an even better song 
unplugged.  I'm basing this off the '01 Live Radio version, but I've tried to combine 
Stacy's Rhythm part and Jamie's lead part into a piece for a solo acoustic guitar, so 
the song's been changed around a little.  All notes are relative to capo, except for 
the solo. Enjoy...
