"Little White Dove"  (Jess Klein) 
 (use capo on 1st fret - Eb)

Tabbed by Gene (starwares@aol.com) - 11/11/02 (Corrections encouraged)

Song is in Eb – use capo on 1st fret
Low E string is tuned down to a D
If you use the dropped tuning the G chord is played like this:
		
   G   
 
E--4--
B--4--
G--1--
D--1--
A--6--
E--6--	

This is really a Gsus (that's the way Jess plays it).
Personally I prefer to use normal tuning and play a regular G.
It's easier and I think it sounds better. 
The downside is you can't use the open bass strings for bass.
This does give it a certain "full" sound especially in the break part.
If you use normal tuning play the bass accordingly and mute the low E in the 
break part. This tab assumes you're using the drop tuning.

This is one way to play the main rhythm riff using all the bass strings:
Play it the way you feel it and have fun.
