                             Of Up and Coming Monarchs - Pedro the Lion

I can promise that this is 100% correct (well, let's say 99%). I found a video 
of David Bazan playing this song that was shot very close so I could verify the 
notes/chords. So, this is at least how he played it in that video, though I 
know he varies a lot of his songs so I'm sure he also plays this in other ways. 
Enjoy!

Tuning: Standard

Intro repeated 4 times. Note: I'll often drop the note on the G string (an E) 
on the first chord as it's awkward for me to play, and it still sounds fine 
(listen to the song for the rhythm).

You'll have to put it all together, but these are all the parts. Just listen to 
the song and it should be pretty easy to figure it all out. I may have taken a 
liberty on a note or two, but if so, it was only for ease of play and won't 
effect the song. Have fun!
