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!
