Owen - Never Meant tab

Song:   Never Meant
Artist: Owen
Album:  Owen/The Rutabega Split
Tuning: Eb-G-Bb-F-Bb-D (no capo)
Tabbed: andrewgioia [at] gmail [dot] com

Notes:
 - The timing isn't shown exactly on the tab, so listen to get that
   correctly.
 - All of the notes on the 4th fret of Eb can be replaced with an open
   note on G. The open on G is a little easier to play.
 - This isn't exactly how Mike plays it (especially with the intro, where
   he plays some bar chords for the bass line that I couldn't figure out)
   as the clips on Youtube show otherwise in some spots, but it sounds
   dead on.
 - I didn't tab out Guitar 2's picking overlay during the intro and
   break, but those are just fills.
 - I also couldn't get the ending riff before the outro, as it sounds
   like 2 guitars going.
 - The notes shown as (0) are optional, and just mimic the bass line Mike
   plays in the background then.
 - Notes with an "h" after them should be hammered, those with a "p"
   after them are pulled, and "s" means slide up to that note.
 - Enjoy! And please send any corrections.

Note: those last 5 bars are just a little extra that kind of sounds
fuller; Mike layers at least one other guitar track over top that I
can't really figure out.
