Stars & Stripes
Olivia the Band
Tabbed by acrossthesirion
Standard Tuning

I tabbed this song because relient-K-freak requested it, but I still think
it is a good song.  The solo took me a really long time and it should be
close.  I also had trouble with the lead on the chorus so post a correction
if you think its different.

acrossthesirion - 2005-08-07

why does no one rank my tabs


Cheese_Monkey - 2005-10-02

because nobody reads them.

jkz, good tab buddy! very detailed, a genuine work of art. i'll have to listen to my Olivia CD a little more, but you can count on a good rating :D


sXcountry - 2005-11-27

its good! but it needs a little work on the lead picking parts


sXcountry - 2005-11-27
