If you get a good one for Thank You Friends, post it here. I couldn't get it to sound right, especially the intro.

Awesome dude! Thanks!!!


While you're at it, can you take a stab at "Just A Kid"? And if it's in a weird tuning, can you fake it in standard tuning? I hate tuning the guitar in standard tuning so songs in alternate tunings are non starters for me. I know, bad attitude. I probably need more guitars.
