Hello, and this is the guitar tab to the Eels' song "Royal Pain", featured exclusively 
the soundtrack to "Shrek the Third." The chorus is very hard to get because of the 
on the guitar, and I'm completely open to suggestions.

To get the tabbing pattern down, you'll have to listen to the song. It's a bit hard to transcribe.

INTRO:                     (drumroll)
