Poor Poor Pitiful Me Tab

   
Tabbed by: wheeluh_boy@hotmail.com


Here's the lead guitar part for the famous Ronstadt tune, "Poor Poor Pitiful Me."
I had to learn this by ear for an audition, and it sounds pretty exact when you
play it with the recording.

To play with recording, Capo 1st fret in standard tuning. All tab positions are
relative to the capo.
