Fastball – Fire Escape tab ver. 2

Standard tuning (EADGBE)

Great song by Fastball.  The lead is pretty easy to find, but it took me a 
while to figure out the rhythm behind.  Here's my interpretation, which is a
mix of ear and watching them play the song live... the timing is
approximate, so please listen to the song to get the strumming right.  Hope 
that helps... email me ( if you have corrections and/or questions!
