Elliott Smith - Christian Brothers tab

Tabbed by: Eddie Garcia
Hey this is my first tab so go easy on me. This is a great song and is tuned one whole 
down, which, seemed
to be Elliott's favorite tuning.
Elliott also enjoyed half chords so he tends to omit certain strings to create a more 
chord.
I am currently trying to figure out the little solo part, mine is not complete but it 
close. Enjoy. If you have corrections/suggestions
please feel free to email me on this site. Username is Kashmir101.


                           These are 10s here. Avoiding clutter.Same rhythm.

The song just follows the same rhythmic pattern. Here is what I gathered the solo is. 
like it was done with a 12 string.
Not 100% but I am close.
