Guitar 2 (Dirty/distorted electric) plays the verse twice. I'll update this tab for the rest of the song soon, cuz i'm not a good lead guitar player, and this song has too many licks going in the background. Also, there's a solo somewhere, so I'll need more time. But you can survive with these parts for now! ======= Our Lady Peace A Story About a Girl Tabbed by: Andy Picker Tuning: down a half step www.ourladypeace.cc Guitar 1 intro
