Here are the tabs for the acoustic version of "Good News and Bad News." I did this as
as I can, so there might be a few errors here or there. In other words, if you find
wrong, deal with it. Also, the formatting in Myspace blogs is absolutely atrocious, so 
have to excuse some of the lame spacing. I have way more important things to do than fix
such as finish watching the season finale of The O.C. Seriously, did Seth's mom 
have that kid? LAME.

ANYways, here's something for you to play around the campfire. Rock on, dudes and dudettes.

Play these notes with some simple strumming between notes. Nuthin' fancy.

Keep goofing around until the strumming sounds right. Play Fig. 2 at the end of the verse.
