                             Only Life - The Feelies
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Rachel
Email: rvandeve@mscd.edu

Tuning: Both Guitars - E A D G C e

It's also very possible to play this song in 
standard tuning, but by raising the B string 
up a whole step, it makes a very easy song even easier. 

If you're unsure of which note "C" is, match
the open "B" string to the fifth fret note of the "G" string.

 guitar 1 does all of the fun stuff.

sorry, B to C is a half step, not a whole step like I wrote. the tab is correct, apparently my music theory training is not.

You can also play it in standard and just play all notes on one fret up on the C string, great tab though
