Born In The Fifties Tab

Transcribed by gnolivos

I've seen only one tab of this song, and it is in the wrong (standard) tuning.  
If you watch Andy play this song live, you can see his is playing these chords, on 
an F-tuned guitar (half step UP).

Tuning: Half Step *UP*  (F tuning)

Guitar effect: light gain
