In Other Words - Ben Kweller
transcribed by smoo (http://www.cjas.org/~smoo/tabs.htm)
this isnt exactly a guitar song, but this should be close enough
heh, ok, i've discovered that the album version is different from the mp3 file i
originally figured this out from.. so either tune your guitar down a whole step or
or just play the chords down a step, ie: Em=>Dm C=>B D=>C Am=>Gm G=>F B=>A
