   Artist: Foo Fighters 
   Song Title: Stacked Actors 
   Released: October 1999 
   Album- There is Nothing Left to Lose 
   Tabbed: 24-1-00
   
The original by gavin helped a lot, and the song is a lot harder 
than it sounds, but its in Drop A. The Sixth string (low E) is tuned
down to an A. If you try and play a long with your guitar tuned to D
or anything else it sounds wrong. There a few corrections. thanks to
Gavin
for the original.

   Drop  Tuning 
Key : {4} - this is a harmonic on the fourth fret of the drop A it 
            is a C#. If you can't do that you can play the note in 
            brackets like this (6 6)

   Oh mirror mirror, your'e coming in clear 
   I'm finally somewhere in between 
   I'm impressed what a beautiful chest 
   I never meant to make a big scene 
   Will you resign to the latest design 
   You look so messy when you dress up in dreams 
   One more for hire, a wonderful liar 
   I think its time we should all become clean

   Yeah but things aren't always what they seem
