Reuben - Cities On Fire tab

Artist: Reuben
Song: Cities On Fire

Tab by: Mark Jones

This is my first tab but ive used tabs loads since I started playing guitar. Just 
Id give something back.

My email is zeroblackstar@hotmail.com if you have any comments or suggestions.

Tune to drop D, then half step down (Thats C#G#C#F#A#D#)

Listen to the track for the rhythm.

po = Pull off
h  = Hammer on
sl = Slide
b  = Bend (look at top for amount)
x  = Mute String
pm = Palm Mute
r  = Let Ring

This tab is intended as a rough guide and is not 100% perfect for 2 reasons.

1. It would take too long to write out
2. Youll get better musically by working it out yourself.
