Artist: Yo La Tengo
Album: Painful (release date: October 5, 1993)
Song: A Worrying Thing

A great little acoustic song, one of my favorites from Painful. It's a song for which 
you need two guitars, one of which plays a few similar riffs throughout the whole song, 
and the other plays a bunch of other small riffs.

Guitar 1 Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)
Guitar 2 Tuning: DADGBe
