Top Of The World Tab

   
I tabbed this for my band.  It is tabbed for two guitar parts.  Each guitar does some
rhythm and lead.  The parts Guitar I plays are the easier ones to play while singing,
the harder ones to play while not singing.  Guitar II does everything else. If you have
3 guitarists, you could switch some things up with a 3rd on acoustic, but I have tabbed
it so Guitar I does the acoustic part on a clean electric sound.  If you have two
guitarists who don’t sing, you could arrange these parts differently than I did, such
as having one guitarist do all rhythm and the other the lead.

INTRO—[Can be done by third guitar on acoustic—Nick uses classical with nylon strings
on the track--, but if you only have two guitarists, just use an electric with a clean
sound, unless you can pull off switching guitars in time or playing an acoustic guitar
on a stand while your electric is swung behind you]
