'Can't Get It Out Of My Head' - Velvet Revolver
From 'Libertad' Album
Standard Tuning

This song has several layers of guitars, so its hard to get all pieces of 
it with less than 3 guitars. I wrote an acoustic, rhythm, and lead guitar.
Its a really nice love song with some good Slash blues licks. Please rate 
and comment.
