American Tragedy  Tait

Song: American Tragedy
Artist: Tait
Written By: Michael Tait, Pete Stewart
Album: Empty
Copyright: 2001 Out Of Twisted Roots Music (Bmi)
Tabbed By: Tim Dost
============================================================================
This is my first song I've ever tabbed out, so I think I did a pretty good
job, but if there are some mistakes, please email me at timdost@hotmail.com
you can mail me at the same adress for comments and stuff...
Have fun playing!!
( I'm dutch, so my english is not very good, so I hope you can understand it)
In the intro I think Pete uses a capo on the first fred, The chords are
relative to capo. Otherwise play
[Fm] [-] [C#] [-] [As] [-] [Es]  
Intro: Em - C - G - D (2*)
Then Pete plays this,
Hold the first note a very short time and then bend it, listen to the song to get the feel...

If we just believe then we all can be free
Nanananananananaaaa!
