Blue October – 18th Floor Balcony tab ver. 3

     Hi There!  This is such a lovely song by Blue October
and it's quite easy to play, even for beginners. I did this 
so the lyrics and tabs are there together so you know what
part is played where, which imo, makes it much easier to 
play and sing along:) Listen to the song to get the rhythm 
down for the picking. I didn't put all of the hammers in, 
play them if you hear 'em.  It sounds great:)

*This plays along note for note to the studio version from the CD.
The live versions may be slightly different*


               ************Have Fun and RATE:)**********
                                Thanks!
