hi mom 52 Jun 21, 2008 08:08 AM

the tuning is 1/2 step down (key of Eb), I believe.

Very good tab ! 'hi mom' is correct, it sounded off in standard tuning, but in Eb, it sounded perfect. My only problem with the tab was the format of the last part [the last 3 lines]. I got a bit confused following it with the music. Otherwise, brilliant !!
