Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.


Hold My Hand  Hootie & the Blowfish

This is my first one, so you'll have to excuse any mistakes. I tabbed
out the fills, but I don't have a good enough ear or enough time to tab
out the solo. If someone could send it to me, I'll update the song and
repost it.
Like I said, this is my first time, and although I double-checked it, it
may not be quite right. If you have any fixes or catch any mistakes,
please e-mail me at devans1@osf1.gmu.edu and I'll be happy to fix it. If
you think I did a lousy job and flame me, I'll just hit the elete key
and go on with my life...
