               ONE MAN WRECKING MACHINE - Guster
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Peashow

This is my first tab so critique is appreciated.  I’m sure my format isn’t all that
but I’m 99% sure of the accuracy.  The reason I decided to tab this song is because I play
for a band my uncle is in and they wanted to learn this.  After checking the other tabs
I noticed that the guitar fills in between verses were slightly off.  Also, most
missing the F#m chord in the chorus (they had written it as an A).  There are some
with slide guitar used in the chorus and the last verse which I didn’t take the time to
out, but could do upon request.  I also didn’t note the second guitar which comes in 
syncopated guitar upstrokes on the Bm and E in the verse.  This is self explanatory
you listen to the song and I believe the chords are on the 7th fret barre formation.
for viewing!

I think that at the end of the solo it should be 7 then 5 on the B string. What you have doesn't sound right.

Are some of those E5's and D5's backwards in the verses? Shouldn't it always be A E D D?
