Subject: TAB: HUM - 'Stars'


                         Hum - 'Stars'
               from the album 'You'd Prefer an Astronaut'
              
    Dropped-D tuning (detune low E string to D)
    
    note: this ain't exact; Hum has two guitars, so I've left
          out some stuff, and the rest is my highly subjective
          listening..I haven't included exact number of chord
          strokes, when to hit distortion, etc...use this as
          a starting point and listen to the song for the rest)


          (intro)
