Murder In The City Tab - The Avett Brothers




So here it is.. the picking pattern is simplified but works just fine if you're flying solo.
They use two guitars in the real song so it's a little weird to replicate.
If anyone has tabs for the two combined, definitely post them!

PS- Mix this pattern with a little strumming, it'll sound great
