Chickenfoot - Learning To Fall
From Self Titled Debut
Eb tuning, 24 fret guitar needed
tabbed by jjhand


This song is very calm and ballad sounding, but still has some cool 
arpeggios and lead guitar soloing. This is slightly simpler than their 
other songs, so give it a try. Please comment and rate the tab.
