                             OLD MAN SAMSON - Whole Wheat Bread
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATED: 04/04/08

This is how I tabbed out "Old Man Samson" by Whole Wheat Bread.  Along with listening to
album, I looked at a live video to see where Aaron Abraham is playing and it tends to
pretty low on the neck.  When I looked carefully, I noticed that during the "Intro" 
he plays with his index finger barred on the 4th fret and keeps his hand in this one spot 
the most part.  Using this info, I was able to transcribe what I believe is most accurate.
 It took me a bit to get this all figured out, but it was worth it and should be pretty accurate.

Tuning: Standard - EADGBe
