                             If You Don't, Don't - Jimmy Eat World
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Patrick Bolter
E-mail: patric@hotmail.com.au

Tuning:
Guitar 1: Standard (EADGBE)
Guitar 2: Drop D (DADGBE)

NOTES:
This is tabbed from the album version and a live version (found on the 2004 "Believe In
What You Want" DVD). I posted a tab about a month ago that was far from right, but while
my guitar had no strings in it I picked up my bass and played to the song, figuring out 
how it actually sounds.
