Elliott Smith - Independance Day

Tabbed by Tony G (yeah@hehe.com)

This is probably wrong (although it sounds

really close), I haven't been playing guitar

long so if I made any mistakes or if you

have any modifications please let me know.

Tune one and a half steps down.

Intro Part:

These are the basic finger positions and the order in which to pluck the strings (leave

them ringing as long as possible), I didn't write the entire intro part out, if you

listen to the song it'll make sense.
