                Understanding Salesmen by the Eels, from the album Blinking Lights.


A tab is given for the introduction and the first line. Throughout the rest
of the song plucking and strumming go hand in hand. Just emphasize the 
lower strings more so than the higher strings. The only part of this tab 
that may sound somewhat askew is the D minor, however I attribute this to 
the presence of strings in the original recording from Blinking Lights.
