Tabbed by:	Ian Ferguson

Tuning:		EAEAC#E - OPEN A

A sublime song by Lowell George - makes all the hairs on your arms stand on end
simultaneously. 

I've transcribed this in an Open A tuning.You could also play in Open G with 
a capo on the 2nd fret if you want. To play in Open G, just move everything 
up 2 frets.
