Dashboard Confessional - Best Deceptions tab

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
{Version 1.7.3.5} <--No real reason why it is 1.7.3.5...
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
{ I originally tabbed this song under "THE Best Deceptions," but it }
{  looks like nobody looks at those ones, so I have resubmitted it  }
{ under "Best Deceptions" and fixed some typos. The chords only are }
{                        still at the bottom.                       }
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

NOTE: The song really IS called "The Best Deceptions", but whatever...

| +-------- Song Difficulty being "Pretty Easy" means Beginners shouls be able to play it with a little practice. I was looking at the other tabs, and the few that had it in the correct tuning, had it very difficult, and I don't think it's that hard. So I've created a tab complete with all the timing nad rhythms that sounds great (and is more correct than the others I believe) and is quite easy to play. Hope you like it, please enjoy.

NOTE: Where the fist letter of the chord is is about where the chord starts in relationship to the word(s). Get the strumming and timing down and listen to the song if you are struggling with where the words go, but this should really help. ====================================================================== ====================================================================== ||Remember: || || IF YOU JUST WANT THE WORDS AND THE CHORDS, SCROLL TO THE VERY BOTTOM || || || ====================================================================== ====================================================================== D D7 BD D4 D D2 2D I heard about your trip.
