Don’t know when you’ll read this- you seem to be the invisible man.
This tab is pretty much perfect- Just with the D7- it sometimes sounds like they’re playing some other kind of D.
Man, this song is awesome. I would like to have heard solo, acoustic Elliott Smith version, like he did with “Half Right” and “See You Later”…
Perfect, thanks a lot
