Elliott Smith

First of all let it be said that this tab is probably more

representative

of some of Elliott's live versions than the album version...said!

Also a big thanks to Scott and Chadwick for getting me started.

Alternate tuning: tune b-string to c and down half a step

Intro:

Am (x02200) (4 bars)
