Song: You’ll Always Be My Best Friend
Artist: Relient K
Album: The Bird and the Bee Sides

Notes: Good song, though short, it’s fun to do. I arranged it for one acoustic, so if
have a bass player, neglect all “passing tones.” THIS CAN BE PLAYED IN THE Eb STANDARD
you want to do this, just Capo 3rd instead of 2nd. Oh, and please don’t mind my chord 
I’m lazy. They’ll be notated as if no capo is present.

Tuning: Standard w/ CAPO 2nd

Intro: Listen for rhythm. It’s like a country two-step feel, so hit the bass notes on
own, then stress the higher strings on the strumming. This is especially important on the
tones, like the E/F# and the A2/B.

       There's only  time, to live our lives. You’ll be the one that’s…
*The F#/G# isn’t critical, it’s a quick switch anyways, so you could just play the G#
on its own, then head to the A2 to simplify it.

…by my side. & I can promise you, that you'll…be my best friend.

Bridge?: (O:53) Fuller strumming, don’t worry about hitting bass notes like before, just
the rhythm right.

Outro: Don’t necessarily try to follow along with the words, since there’s echoing; just
for the chord changes and they’ll be right.

And that’s the end of that one. Remember to keep that rhythm going throughout the song,
hope you have a bass player to make your job easier. Have fun, God bless.
