                             "BARE" - Matt Nathanson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey yall! The is my first tab, so be gentle on the criticism, but any suggestions or
are certainly welcome.  I know I'm in the right ballpark here with this songs chords and
pattern becuz he has the same play style as I do. Its the strumming and palm mutes that 
this song fun.  This is a great song, and it surprised me that no one tried tabbing
The intro is used throughout the song, so if you master the intro you'll have the entire 
licked. Take note of the Chord Key:

When you were broken

Planning parties now for all the fools
