Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Band- Margot and the Nuclear So & So's
Song- I Am a Lightning Rod
Album- Animal!/ Daytrotter Sessions EP
Tabber: Jon Green

The tab is based more off of the Daytrotter Session song and a cover video 
online where its just Richard playing the guitar. I don’t know the
 technical chords name so sorry if they are a bit confusing. But let me know 
what you think. If you find mistakes I will gladly change them for you.I had 
trouble with the bridge after the second chorus so I think that I am wrong
 at that part. Listen to the song to get the rhythm down other than that 
this is a pretty simple song. Most of the song has the base note of each 
chord picked before strumming the rest of it. Anyways have fun.

delivering sound to you

Verse 2: (Same as above)
he's a charming wreck
and he's a handsome wreck

and i'm not travelin'
i'm not sleepin' in
the clothes i wore
a hundred times or more.

Chorus (Same as above)

Bridge:
Dm        Gm

I'll be you
if you want me to
i'll clean your clock

Chorus (Same as above)
And if this town seems too big,
if the traffic freaks you out.
I will be your lightning rod
delivering sound.
I can see beneath your skin.
It really freaks me out.
I will be your camera's flash
delivering sunbeams.

End song with Cm Chord.
