"Don't Go" by Matthew Sweet

	Folks, this is a tough little number, at least to write it down.
It calls for at least one rhythm guitar, one lead guitar, and if needed,
an extra tremolo rhythm guitar.  The basic chord layouts are used the same
throughout the whole song except for one or two changes.  The killer here
is the lead part, which is mostly just ad-lib feedback, so this
transcription may not be the most accurate, but it'll help you get an
idea of the note choices used and maybe spawn some improv of your own.
