SOUVENIR
(Neil Finn)

NOTES: 

-- I've supplied two different versions of the intro (which is the same 
thing played on the verses); the first version is an easier way to go, 
though the voicings are not as accurate as Version 2. The problem is 
that version 2 relies on the higher strings, giving you very little bass 
to work with -- and this is a pretty bass-heavy song. 

-- This is one of those songs on the album that doesn't work 
particularly well as an acoustic guitar song.

-- The riff is pretty much identical all through the song.
