Rem - The One I Love tab

Song: The One I Love
Artist: R.E.M.
Album: Document

This song is really fun to play on a 6-string, even though it's really a 12-string song.

Gtr. 1: Rickenbacker 360/12, moderately distorted
Gtr. 2: acoustic

The acoustic guitar just plays chords so I'll just put that.

The tab:
