               Promise - Matchbook Romance, from Stories & Alibis (2003)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Dave
Email: enduh@msn.com
Tuning: Standard, EADGBE

*** I wrote this tab for a solo version, not for 2 guitarists, so I hope it works
out for ya. If you prefer acoustic, go for it. I used a lot of bar chords to mute
the high strings and to fret the low strings to make it easier. If you have any 
questions at all, feel free email me. Enjoy =)***
