SMILE AT LIFE AGAIN
As recorded by The Elms
Album: TRUTH, SOUL, ROCK AND ROLL, C 2002

Transcribed by scheller: sonnyschell@hotmail.com

Here is a more complete tab of Smile at Life Again.  The other
version was pretty close, but I've added the parts that were
missing and made some corrections.  For the picking pattern, 
I use my thumb for the bass notes and my index and middle for the
double-stop high parts. I could have made this shorter, but it 
would have made it more confusing.
