Tabbed by Valenten

Playing settings : if you don't have an acoustic guitar, but only an electric one, you 
play this song in clean mode. It seems to me interesting if you add a bit of chorus or 
on it ; you'll get a more acoustic sound.
Difficulty : This song is really simple to play. Even beginners shouldn't have major 
My best advice would be to try to have the clearest possible sound when playing.

This tab only shows the melodic part of the song, for the rhythm part must be played by 
guitar (or maybe acoustic bass). I'll edit this tab as soon as I've decrypted this 2nd 
Furthermore, you can easily get the rhythm by listening to the song.
