The Lion Sleeps Tonight Tab - Rem

Lion Sleeps Tonight - REM

tab - guitar 1(chord), guitar 2(tab), bass (tab)
tab by Jens Sörensen (jens@norsumato.com)

This is ear-transcribed from the REM version with a few twists made by myself,
for example the outro which I had to concoct myself. Guitar 2 is technically
added by myself, as it is a cross-tab of the way REM performs it and how I
perform it alongside my friends. The second guitar is practically just an
arpeggio of the chords the first guitar plays. I have arranged the bass as well,
so what you will see in the tab below is the chords above, then the second
guitar, and below that the bass and vocals. It is an easy song and very good, and
audiences like it, enjoy :)

Drums: basic comp (ONEtwothreefourONEtwothreefour etc.) continuous 
Vocals: ideally at least three vocals. VOCAL1 means one singer,
VOCAL2 means two, VOCALALL means all
