This is in 6/8 time but I wrote it in 12/8 to save space.
They use two acoustic guitars on this one.

That's pretty much the whole thing. There is a chord progression change in the middle that I haven't figured out yet. Same with the solo. I'll post those when I get a chance later. \|||/ ( o o ) Wesley Torres - jiffypop@mail.ibcco.com +-.oooO--(_)--Oooo.---------------------------------------+

Heres my Tab for "Why?". Play it fingerstyle or with a plectrum. There are some hammer ons in the main bits as well, like 0h3 when your going on to the C chord etc. Also, I play some of the bits, like the F chord bit, lower than in the song. Try playing it on DGBe strings instead of EADG if you like. Whatever sounds best to you... ( theres no timing in the tab but its easy if you play along ) Have fun! Roof with a Hole and Chemical Garden on the way... ( / = slide, h = hammer, p = pull off, ~ = vibrato ) Song Sequence goes something like this: (A) * 4 (B) * 1 or 2 ??? (C) * 2 (D) * 2 (A) * 2 (B) * 1 or 2 ??? (C) * 2 -solo 1 (A) * 2 (B) * 1 or 2 ??? (C) * 4 (D) * 2 or 4 ??? (B) * 2 or 4 ??? (D) * 2 or 4 ???
