Jimmy Eat World - If You Dont Dont Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is NOT a direct translation of the song. This is my arrangement of it acoustically,
as I've never actually heard an official acoustic version. This is essentially the same
song; same chords just a different tuning and different positioning so as to compliment 
it better for a solo acoustic guitar.

Look at the other tabs for the solo part if you want it (they should match my chords
just fine). I designed this tab for a single guitar, but I do like to a capella the solo;
go nuts, the crowd will love the energy, plus it's pretty entertaining (having a harmony 
singer can make this part sound really cool).

Even if your heart would listen, doubt I could explain.
