Hope Of The States – George Washington tab

This is a great song, from Hope of the State's first album.

The timing is a bit off, but its quite easy to pick up if you listen to the song. 

A reasonable starting strumming pattern for the chord sections is D D D U 
(D=Down, U=Up)

Many thanks to the person who produced ver 1 (in_your_world@hotmail.co.uk)
