levi stubbs tears Billy Bragg
Subject: CRD: Levi Stubbs Tears (Billy Bragg) I've seen a couple request for this so I thought I'd put my two cents worth in. Maybe not completely accurate, but it will give you a start. Most of the song is done using the bass strings and muted, except where the Bm to A at the end of a measure is (listen to the song to see what I mean). The two string riff before and during the first part of the chorus will be denoted by two string chords. They will be marked with a *. Feel free to correct as need - especially the bridge.
