                            HANDS OPEN - Snow Patrol
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Miranda Harding
Email: pixiedamage@hotmail.com

Tuning: eBGDAD

You can play it in regular tuning, but I think it's fun/easier to play it drop D.
Heavy distortion throughout.
