Smile Like You Mean It Tab

   
Artist: The Killers
Song: Smile Like You Mean It
Album: Hot Fuss 
Guitarist: Dave Keuning
Tuning: Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb (Basically All In Flats)
Tabbed By The Flying Welshman a.k.a James Morris
Date: 27/02/05

As no one else had tabbed this song, I thought I would give it a go.
I am 100% sure everything is correct. I have tabbed the 3 guitars for this song. Guitar
is the main one tabbed, Guitar 2 plays the chords throughout the song and Guitar plays a
small build up to the chorus later in the song. Enjoy.
