Santa Monica   Everclear



Santa Monica
As recorded by Everclear on "Sparkle and Fade"
Tabbed by Steve Smith (sesmith3@eos.ncsu.edu)

Santa Monica was Everclear's first big hit nation-wide. It is the main reason 
this album went platinum and sold 1.5 million copies.

Main part (repeat a few times, listen to CD for exactness):

e|-------------------------------------------------------
b|-------------------------------------------------------
g|-------------------------------------------------------
d|-5-5---5-5-5-5-5-5--xxxx-5-5-5-5-5-5--xxxx-5-5-5-5---5-
a|-5-5---5-5-5-5-5-5--xxxx-5-5-5-5-5-5--xxxx-5-5-5-5---5-
e|-3-3---3-3-0-0-3-3--xxxx-3-3-0-0-3-3--xxxx-3-3-0-0---3-

then it has a slight variation after you play that for awhile:

e|----------------------------------------------------------
b|----------------------------------------------------------
g|----------7-7---7-7-9-9-5-5---7-7-9-9-5-5---7-7-5-5-------
