Title: The Star Spangled Banner/4th of July Reprise
Album: Greatest Hits
Transcribed by: J. Chitty
Email: 08jchidester@davis.k12.ut.us

The guitars are lined up with exact timing (guitar 2 right under guitar 1)

Boston's arrangement of this song is one of my
favorites. That's all I have to say.

Guitar 1: Standard Tuning       (E A D G B E) Low to High
Guitar 2: Drop D Tuning         (D A D G B E) Low to High

NEXT SONG: Miss America - Styx
