Mick Flannery – California chords

Song: California
Artist: Mick Flannery
Album: White Lies

Okay so. This is California. I love this song. Great guitar in it. I called this 
a chords tab because it is mostly chords but I'll tab out the intro and a fill.

Okay, Mick has a guitar style of using pick and his 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers. A 
mix between picking and finger picking basically. So for this intro just use 
whatever you find easiest.

Dsus4: x54010

Intro: (make the chord shapes. the tabbing is based around them)
