Social Distortion - Machine Gun Blues tab

Song: Machine Gun Blues
Band: Social Distortion
Album: Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes

Alright guys, back soon with another one. A pretty new song
that's recently hit the radio stations from one of my
favorite bands.  Typical Social Distortion song. Chords, solo,
and some more chords. Fifth track off of their week old album.
Very easy to play and very easy to follow.
Some of you (me) might have trouble with the ending lick that Mike
unexpectedly rips through. 




**ONLY CHORDS PLAYED IN THIS SONG ARE E, G, and D. VERY EASY TO FOLLOW**

That's it for another Social D song guys. The only part I had doubts on
was the ending lick. Feel free to give any input on that. Let me know what you think!
