                             WHEELS - Foo Fighters
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tabbed by: greenwoodfan93

Shifflet: Tuning:Standard (Capo on 2!!) and the tab is relative to capo

Note: For the intro and verse Shifflet seems to strum rather the pick to get that 
jangly sound, so mess around a bit strumming and muting the unplayed notes to get that sound.
