wouldn't
be as great of a song(and theres about 15 versions in the .tab)As always
all corrections, and *better* versions to KyleB@Juno.com

Six Degrees (report)

The first (top) version seems not bad to me. I could make it sound reasonable (? on G6). The 5th fret harmonics may as well be changed to 12th fret harmonics and are much easier to sound out for what amounts to a fun version.

dada (report)

seems to be quitea mess

James McCormick (report)

http://getsome.org/guitar/olga/main/j/jewel/you_were_meant_for_me.crd

Seems to be two separate versions one one page along with "chaff" that is irrelevant.
