--Title: Son of Sam
--Artist: Elliott Smith
--Release: Figure 8
--last updated: 1/5/2008

--transcription by: J. Elliott Dozier
--contact: elliott_dozier@hotmail.com

--tuning: The studio version is standard (E A D G B E), but live he痴 usually a
(Eb G# C# F# Bb Eb) or a whole step down (D G C F A D)

NOTE: There are about 5 or 6 different variations of this song. I知 tabbing out the live
version with the built-in solos. Most of the time he played it this way live acoustic,
sometimes he played just the chords. See the end for the simpler way (the studio 
version is this way).

--INTRO (to make it easier, I値l show the chords we値l be playing first, and then I値l

Here are base chords that we値l be playing...rest your fingers here and I値l showbelow:|--0---0---0-------------------1---0--||--5---5---5---7---7---0---1---1---0--||--5---5---0---4---4---0---2---2---1--||--------------4---4---0---0---3---2--||------------------------------3---2--||--5---4---5---5---4---3---2---1---0--|
