Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Standard
Effects: Fuzz



Version 1 of this tab was rather spot on. But I noticed there is a low E
bass-line being played in parallel for most of the song. Also, there are 
a few different riffs used in the verses that were not tabbed before. 
Also, most of the solo wasn't tabbed. Keep in mind that parts of the solo
below are played VERY quickly.

That being said, it's a cool little twist of a song based on "Poor Boy" 
by Howlin' Wolf. 

Comment/message with corrections/ideas. Please rate my tab.
