Misery Whip  Everclear

As recorded by Everclear on "SFAAM #2: Good time for a Bad Attitude"
Tabbed by Jason Pan (balaka@alphalink.com.au)
NOTE: Tuning is half a step down (Low to High EbAbDbGbBbeb)
All Chords are written with respect to that tuning
(ie A becomes G#)

Suggestion from Hugh Yik (hyik@nb.sympatico.ca)
the F# should be a full bar chord on the lower octave.
rather than the high F#
Suggestion from Troy Blaker (tblaker@kiva.net)
I was playing misery whip on my 12 string and then I listened to the
cd. I think that the intro is on his taylor 12 srting. To be in fact
I'm damn sure of it.
later, Troy
