Subject: TAB:"Breakin' Up" by violent femmes

        For this song I worked out the electric solo and then went back and
did my best on the acoustic lead-in. I'm pretty sure that the solo is
correct(although extraordinarily easy) but I'm not certain about the
lead-in. So even if it's not exactly the way that Gordon plays it,it sounds
pretty close. You be the judge. If you work out a different way of playing
it, or if you just have questions or comments, e-mail me at meunier.1@osu.edu
