I'm on a Boat  The Lonely Island



Tabbed by: Jono
Tuning: Standard
The entire song follows the chord progression Am , C , F , G#m (or G; I like how G#m
better, though, but it's up to you). You can also play the power chords if you'd like,
the standard chords offer a fuller sound. I know they're not labeled correctly, but
to make it simple I put them in parentheses next to the standard chords.
Enjoy! And buy their CD; these guys are hilarious.
