Wheat Kings  The Tragically Hip

Date: Sat, 26 Aug 95 00:32:00 UTC
Subject: TAB: Wheat Kings - The T.Hip
Wheat Kings, The Tragically Hip
>From FULLY COMPLETELY, 1992
Tabbed by Duncan Koerber
This the second acoustic guitar tab ONLY. The first acoustic plays the
chords I've listed above the tab. An electric guitar comes into the
song halfway through but I have no inclination to tab that.
Remember, in this song the guitar I have tabbed is in the right channel,
while the electric guitar and the first guitar are on the left channel.
When listening to BOTH channels (which I'm sure you will do), some of the
parts I've tabbed won't be as obvious or very clear. Keep that in mind
if you think you see sections that need corrections. :)
