Beta Band – Life tab

The Beta Band - Life

Tabbed by Jon Hard, April 2007

First Tab, hope its ok ... sorry i dont know the proper chord names.

Awesome song, to hear the acoustic version i tabbed this from, go to and search 
the beta band:



-At the end of verse 3 - you want to only play the 4 central strings of D, and the 4 
of F - and palm muting them between strums works well.

-For the last bit, use your thumb for the notes on the low E or you've got no chance!
