                        SIDEKICK - MAN OVERBOARD
------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Tuning: Eb (Half Step Down)

NOTE: "Sidekick" has a ton of effects and piano melodies that make it tough to
tab out a perfect version on the guitar. I've transcribed it out as best I could
for a stripped-down acoustic-y version.

As you'll see, the song revolves around two basic progressions
(relative to standard tuning - 1. E Maj, G#, A  and 2. E Major, B, A).
The power chord A sounds a little better for me, but you can play the
full open chord if you want.
 
Feel free to alternate the progressions if one doesn't sound right
to you or if it fits your voice better.
