Four Year Strong - It Must Really Suck To Be Four Year Strong Right Now tab

'It Must Really Suck To Be Four Year Strong Right Now' by Four Year Strong
From their 2010 album, 'Enemy of the World'

Tuning - D Standard / Whole Step Down (DGCFAd)

Tabbed by Tuscany

This tab has been worked into D Standard, and includes all of the guitar harmonies, line-by-line,
and was tabbed along with multiple footages of them live to figure out who's doing what where. 

Yay! Enjoy!
