Save Me    Forty Foot Echo



Forty Foot Echo - Save Me (drop D)
tabbed by Tangalicious
izaac_tang@yahoo.com

Due to the great comments and help I got from fellow guitar players, I wanted
to make this tab better and easier to play by using a different tuning.  I
haven't seen Forty Foot Echo live, so I'm not sure which tuning they use but
Drop D makes it much easier play without having to reach five frets and helps
make the bridge easier to play.  The chorus sounds a little bit more accurate
as well.  Thanks again to Forty Foot Echo for making such a good song!
