Dr Dog - County Line tab

County Line by Dr Dog

This is a beautiful tune and one of my favorite songs, and I don't think the tabs 
out there do it justice... This is how I play it, I think it's fairly accurate.

The song is standard tuning 3 steps down. Scott plays the main G chord of the
verse with a C shape (with his pinkie finger on the 3rd fret of the high e 
string) so he can do the riffing with his 2nd finger without interrupting the
chord. I know this from watching videos. You should strum and finger pick this 
however you like, I'm just going to give you the chords.

e|---0--------3----------2--------------------|B|---1--1--1-------------1--------------------|G|---2-------------------2--------------------|D|---2-------------------0--------------------|A|---0----------------------------------------|E|---0----------------------------------------|
Just play that over and over again. Use your own judgment on finger picking and stuff. Enjoy!
