                Janes Addiction - "Just Because"
Tuning: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

Note that all strings ring freely in this song, and that one could
play this in standard if you lower the tabbed numbers by one fret.
Dave Navarro plays this with Eb tuning, so I did as well. Thanks to the
Guitar Pro version and the existing versions for making this tab possible.


Main Riff:

Part 1 play 2x:
