The One I Love  R.E.M.

Song: The One I Love
Artist: R.E.M.
Album: Document
This song is really fun to play on a 6-string, even though it's really a 12-string song.
Gtr. 1: Rickenbacker 360/12, moderately distorted
Gtr. 2: acoustic
The acoustic guitar just plays chords so I'll just put that.
The tab:

Then repeat verse part 1 once.
