Matchbook Romance - Monsters tab


I've seen a lot of tabs for this and though...yes they got the point across, they
just weren't spot on.
 So I decided to make a tab. While this happens to be my first tab, a little while
ago, my band played
this song,and this was exactly how we played it. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my tab
and find it useful :).

*NOTE: (number)* means how many times that thing is played. I couldnt do (x2) or whatever
because the program was messing up. Sorry for any confusion.
