SLOAN - Sugartune
From: Smeared
Tabbed by: Mark Wiebe, rwiebe@mindlink.bc.ca

This song has already been posted by someone else but it's 
totally wrong, so I thought I'd put my own version on. I'm 
glad to see that there are some other Sloan fans out there 
in cyberspace. They were a great band while they lasted. Tell
me if you have any comments, corrections, or suggestions. Thanks.

Tuned down about a half step Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb (It doesn't 
seem like it's quite on the exact pitch, so you might have 
to fool around with you're tuning pegs a bit to match it.)

During A, B, C# part of Fig.1 part the second guitar sometimes 
picks the notes of the chords rather than strumming them.

For people who have never heard this song before I put in the beat values, for the intro atleast. Play with distortion, I think there's another guitar playing some- thing but I have no idea what.
