Great acoustic song off of YLT's most recent album. The first half of the song consists 
of a repeating melody, and the second is occupied by a solo.

At this point, the solo begins. From all the versions I've seen of this song played live 
so far, Ira always plays a different solo from the one on the official version. But, 
here is what he plays in the studio:

|e---3-3-3-3-1-0-----------------------------------------------|
|B---------------1-1-3-----1-1-0-0-----------------------------|
|G---------------------------------2-2-2-2-2-2/5-5-5-5/7-7-7---|
|D-------------------------------------------------------------|
|A-------------------------------------------------------------|
|E-------------------------------------------------------------|

|e----------------------------------------------------------------|
|B---3-1-1-1-0-0----------1-1-1/3-3/5-5/8-8-3---3-1-3-1-0-0-------|
|G---------------0-0----------------------------------------2-0---|
|D-------------------0-0------------------------------------------|
|A----------------------------------------------------------------|
|E----------------------------------------------------------------|

|e---1-1-1-1-1-1/3-3-0---------------------------------------------|
|B---------------------1-3---1-0-----------------------------------|
|G-------------------------------0-0-----0-2-0-0-0-2-0-0-0-2-0-0---|
|D-----------------------------------0-0---------------------------|
|A-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|E-----------------------------------------------------------------|

|e-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|B-------------------------------3---1-3-3-----6-6-6-6-6/5-6-5-3---|
|G---0-2-0-0-0-2-0-0-0-2-0-0-0-0---0-------------------------------|
|D-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|A-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|E-----------------------------------------------------------------|

|e-------------------------------------------------------------|
|B---1-3-1-3-3-3-3-3-3-1-1-3-3-3-1-1-1-0-0-0-2-2-2-0-0---------|
|G-----------------------------------------------------0-0-0---|
|D-------------------------------------------------------------|
|A-------------------------------------------------------------|
|E-------------------------------------------------------------|

|e---1-1-3-0-------------------------|
|B-----------3---0-1-3-1-0-----------|
|G---------------------------2-0-----|
|D-------------------------------0---|
|A-----------------------------------|
|E-----------------------------------|

Now play the main melody one last time:

|e-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|B---3---3---3-3-----1---1---1-1-----0---0---0-0-------0---0-0-----|
|G-----0---0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0---0-----0---0---0-----0---|
|D-----------------------------------------------------------------|  x2
|A-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|E-----------------------------------------------------------------|

|e---------------------------------------------------------------|
|B---------------------------------------------------------------|
|G---------0---0---------0---0-----0---0-0-0-----0---0-0-0-------|
|D---4---4---4---4-2---2---2---2-----0-------0-0---0-------0-0---|
|A---------------------------------------------------------------|
|E---------------------------------------------------------------|

|e-----------------------------------|
|B-------------------------------0---|
|G---------0---0---------0---0-------|
|D---4---4---4---4-7---7---7---7-----|
|A-----------------------------------|
|E-----------------------------------|

And that's the end of the song. Questions? Possible corrections? All welcome.

i tune to Drop D and alternate b/w E and D strings. it doesn't *completely* do the trick, but it's something at least.

Great tab, but I think the verse goes a little more like this:

|e---------------------------------------------------------------|
|B---------------------------------------------------------------|
|G-----0---0---0---------0---0-----0---0-----0----0---0------0---|
|D-0h4---4---4---4s7---7---7---7s9---9-----9----9---9-----9------|
|A---------------------------------------------------------------|
|E---------------------------------------------------------------|
