                       THE WRITHING SOUTH: Say Anything
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: TheThirdDay
Email: TheThirdDaySH@gmail.com

This tab is of the album version, on one guitar. I'm pretty sure there are 

actually two guitars on the record. Standard tuning.

For the most up to date Say Anything tabs, go to playsa.net.

BREAK-DOWN:
   Most people seem to play this routed on 5 on the the A string, but
   I think the heavy bass of playing it at 10 on the E string sounds
   better. It can be played either way, but always play the harmonics
   in the same play.
