Pat Metheny - Story Of A Stranger tab

Artist: Pat Metheny
Song: "Story From a Stranger"
From the 1986 "Works" EP Recording

This is a slow acoustic piece with a second part for a synth voiced guitar
towards the end. I tabbed it from the Pat Metheny Songbook (not so friendly to play from).


Melody - 3/4 time (bass/guitar chords listed)
