The Wonder Years - Melrose Diner tab

I used to play this in drop D tuning, however, drop C or C# sounds better. This song,
especially the intro, is not 100% correct. I taught myself this and it is probably wrong
in a few areas. I did not write every single strum, just the chord changes. If you love 
the song enough to learn it, you should be familiar with all of the strumming patterns.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these tabs. They are the first ones I have written.

Again, this is not 100% right.  I love The Wonder Years, and this song. I taught myself
and I made mistakes.
