Pretty Good Year  Tori Amos

"Pretty Good Year" tab by Tori Amos
Ok. Let's get a few things straight. First of all, you need to strum this,
not pick it. You need to tune down a half-step, but I'm just going to call
them by what they would normally be. Here are the chords needed to play
this song. Some of the timing is kinda weird, but that is a given in most
Tori Amos songs. You can listen to the song to get all the timing and
also to get the exact structure.

[G] [Dsus] [Em7] [Cadd9] Pretty goo[G]d yea[Dsus]r[Em7] [Cadd9]
Ok. That's it. If you're tuned a half-step down, then I guarantee you that
this is the closest you can come to having a perfect guitar tab for this
song. Unlike some of these morons I see everywhere, I don't submit a tab
unless I know it's right.
