The Good Fight Tab

   
Dashboard Confessional - The Good Fight

Ok, I've been trying to work the whole of this out by watching the MTV Unplugged as I
noticed none of the tabs had really put chord order or the outro down.  So well here's
my attempt at the whole song.  I've put the lyrics underneath the chords to make it a
little easier to follow the progressions.  All chords are strummed except in the chorus
when it sounds like Chris is palm muting the Eb string on fret 5 (third time round),
it's actually the bass playing that note.
Slightly updated this with a few extra notes added.  In the Chorus, I really like to
play it with the open strings, I don't know if Chris does it, but I think it stays very
much within his style of playing.  Also, on the outro breakdown part, there's the
optional open Gb string I've put in, sometimes I also strum in the Eb string into them,
but again, optional, so use your discretion on those chords.

Tuning - Eb (Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb)
