Album: THE END IS NEAR

Words by Reese RoperMusic by Micah, Dennis and Reese

I couldn't believe no one has tabbed out this song yet but I guess 
it is a bit tricky to hear all the parts, here's what I can figure
out of it!!

standard tuning
r = slight rest
x = mute
/ = slide

Intro, you can slide between these or play them all 
on the same strings if you wish, doesn't matter. Play
it through twice:
