BIRD FLEW BY
     
Tuning: Standard Capo 3rd fret (bit sharp)
     


INTRO
                                h
|--------|--------|--------|-----0--| 
|--32----|--23-2--|--3-----|--00----| 
|--22--2-|--22-2--|--2-----|--201---| 
|-2---2--|-2-----0|-4-4-0-0|-2-----0| 
|0---0---|--------|2-------|--------| 
|-------0|3---3-3-|----2-1-|0---0-0-|

(i find this easiest to barre the A shape with my index finger, and
play the G bass in the second bar with my middle finger)

when this pattern occurs as a link between verses the second bar becomes:

|--------|
|--32----|
|--22----|
|-2---2-0|
|--------|
|3---3-3-|

sometimes the links are just a line of the verse played again. whether you
think they ought to be the intro bit really is up to you....
