Chickenfoot- "Soap On A Rope"
From Debut album
Standard Tuning
Tabbed by jjhand, with help of intro tabs

Nobody attempted the whole song, so here you go, play it all if you dare.
Please rate it and comment if you like it or have corrections. The solos
are pretty advanced so it may take a while to learn.
