Standard tuning and a slight delay/echo effect. If you are playing the old version,
use a volume pedal. Listen to the record to get the strumming correct during the choruses.

Hi, I've tabbed this once before but I hadn't registered.
The song has two guitars. On mainly acting as bass (but not always), and the
other mainly acting as lead (but not always).
Guitar 1 is the bass and Guitar 2 is the lead. Guitar 1 is easier.
This is a great song and really worth learning-I hope my version's right!
Enjoy!
