Hootie And The Blowfish - Hold My Hand tab


From: devans1@osf1.gmu.edu (David A Evans)

This is my first one, so you'll have to excuse any mistakes.  I tabbed 
out the fills, but I don't have a good enough ear or enough time to tab 
out the solo.  If someone could send it to me, I'll update the song and 
repost it.  

Like I said, this is my first time, and although I double-checked it, it 
may not be quite right.  If you have any fixes or catch any mistakes, 
please e-mail me at devans1@osf1.gmu.edu and I'll be happy to fix it.  If 
you think I did a lousy job and flame me, I'll just hit the elete key 
and go on with my life...
