                             "Hot N Cold" - Katy Perry
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: [travis]


*This is a catchy song, and it's an easy song to figure out.

*This song is in Drop D, and I know this because I saw this song
live on "Tonight Show With Jay Leno," and the guitarists were playing
the chords in drop d tuning, or power chords. 

*This is the version from the album though, not the live version.

*Also, I tabbed this by ear. It is not from another site, or magazine.
