tab by Jackie Joyner

The song is very straight forward from a rhythm guitar stand point.
There's mainly 2 repeating sections until about 2:35 when it changes
slightly. There really is no defined chorus or verse in the song, only
times when Travis sings and when he doesn't so that's why I have sections
that are Verse/Chorus.

Also there are multiple guitars in this song, but I'm only
going to tab it for solo guitar.
