Pretty Girl (the way)
Start Static
drop d tuning

intro - 2x

this is the actual way to play it, all the other versions 
are wrong, u can even check the video to see what frets Tim is on...

***note:some people have "corrected" the intro. I have checked 
OVER and OVER and I'm sure this is right. Even if it is not, the 
correction that was posted is WRONG. Please, go back and listen more
carefully, this is not wrong.

pre - verse

guitar 1:
it sounds almost like tim is only playing 2 downstrokes, 
but its more of this reggae struming:

pretty girl is suffering while...head..

guitar 2 is doing a few fills here with the phaser effect
 that im too lazy to figure out...

apply all the parts where they come in

thats it... im not gonna say its 100% correct since the 
only people who can possibly play it that way are the 
people who wrote it... however, this is probably the most
 accurate tab u'll find for it anywhere... let me know if 
u can find any mistakes or fill in the missing pieces
