Elliott Smith - Riot Coming tab

This is my first Elliott Smith tablature. It's in standard tuning, two half steps down.
I play the E, F, and G with the same fingering, which makes chord changes quick. I 
strum this with my thumb on the bass runs and my first three fingers on the chord strums.

I also play two two-note riffs after the Em's in the verses.


-0-- -0-1-|--1- and -----|---- -----|---- -----|---- -----|---- -----|
These might be lead guitar in the recording, but it's easy to add them solo. Intro
