Artist:Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Title: American Girl

Submitted by: Logan Unplugged (loganhighlander@yahoo.com)

My Tab submissions are to thank everyone at the Guitar Tab Universe for all the great tabs and making me a
much better guitar player since I found this site a couple years ago.  I wanted to give something back so 
the tabs I am submitting, I believe, are as close to complete as you may get from any one tab on any site.
I've compiled this tab from every tab of this song I could find on the internet and/or in mags and this is
the result.  It contains what I believe are the riff, solos, progressions, and lyrics (some of my corrections 
and addition) to try and make this tab the as close to the recorded song as possible.  

I play alot of parties for my friends where it's just me and an acoustic guitar and this is the tab that is
sitting on my music stand.  I hope you find this tab helpful.  Once again, Thank you Guitar Tab Universe 
and all Tab Submitters!!!
