Here's a song I tabbed I thought you might want to add to the archive.

-Ken.


"Shelter" by The Alarm

There are actually two guitars, one playing the chords, another playing the
lead riffs.

I believe the song is written in the key of A, if this helps.

Chords:
B5	x2440x
A	x02220
D	x00232
E	022100

For each riff, I just use the strings it uses to save a little space.
