Name:  The Lion Sleeps Tonight
Artist:
Tabbed by:  Joel Estes


The intro riff is pretty easy.  It's based off of a minor pentanonic scale.  Really no shocker here, just 
fun to play.
 Feel free to whistle if it floats your boat.

before playing the 10th fret second string you should play the twelfth fret

I would say:
e------------------------7--------------------------------------|
B----------------------------9----7---9----12----10----9----7---|
G-------------------------------------------------------------9-|
D---------------------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------|

Alternative to going to 9 on the G string you can go down to 5 on the B

Actually, it's based on the major scale. Not the minor pentatonic.
