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.

Db   446664

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.

E -8---|---9----|----10-9--9-------|----6-5-5------|---5-3-----3----|----8---|----10---
B ---6-|----8---|---7----10-10-10--|---6---6-6-6---|-------5-6--5-3-|---6-6--|---7-----
G --9--|--9--9--|--7----------7--7-|--7-------7-7--|--4-------------|--7---7-|--7------
D 0----|-0------|-0----------------|-8-------------|-5--------------|-0------|-0-------
