Uncle Tupelo – New Madrid tab ver. 2

Uncle Tupelo
New Madrid tab 
standard tuning, capo on 2

optional Intro riff:
note:This is not necessarily how Jeff plays the intro in the recording or
live, but it is a guide to one way you can play the intro to this song that 
I think sounds good. Especially if you are playing with just an acoustic 
with no accompaniment. The chords, however, should be accurate. 
Emphasize the bass runs throughout and add in hammer ons/pull offs to add
 color where desired.
