Don't Be Mean  Sonata Arctica

DON'T BE MEAN - Sonata Arctica
Acoustic version by sinForge xJp
Standard Tuning, Capo 4
This is NOT based on an acoustic performance/recording!!
Sonata always uses 1/2 down tuning, whether they're playing |
with a 7-string or 6-string. However, I chose to tab this |
in Standard because once they guitar actually comes in, it |
sounds like a capo is being used anyway (by audible hints |
are the D chords) so if it's in Eb tuning with a capo on 5, |
what I've done here is essentially the same. ~Enjoy!! |
