Yoko Kanno - Whats It For tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          What's it for? - Yoko Kanno                          
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: XCrusherX@gmail.com

Tuning: Drop D (DADgbe) with capo on the 3rd fret

Note: I'm pretty sure the original song has some kind of open tuning closer to a standard tuning with 
      a capo on the first fret. That's pretty clear from the harmonics at the end of the chorus.
      I tried to tab a version that works with a more common tuning since I personally don't play open ones.

Note 2: As with most songs from Yoko Kanno there's much variation for each verse, chorus etc. 
        This tab only acts as a general guideline since I had huge trouble filtering the guitar 
        out of the mix anyway.

(so capo on the first fret).
