                TUNING: Half step down
NOTES: This song revolves around to riffs. There is a second guitar 
playing some really high solo - type stuff.

I believe this is the first version with the lyrics included.

Where Boys Fear to Tread

intro: slide down to open strings, 
       then hit open strings for about 30 seconds

Tuning   : Eb (surprise!)

Here we go. This tab might not be 100% correct, but
it sounds very very close. I didn't tab the intro.
You'll have to find it out yourself. It's not too
hard.

Verse:

That's it. Not so hard, is it?
Well, see ya.
