This is really a three part guitar song, not to mention the bass, but I made it a two
part. It sounds almost exactly the same, it's just a little harder. If you play just G1
you can play it by yourself and do it justice, but try to get someone else to play with
you, it's nice.

The symbols above the tabs are for the beats. 

| is for the first beat. ' is for every other beat.
