Say Anything
"Yellow Cat / Red Cat"
Tabbed by: Scott Rome

In this song there is a "main riff" with variations (small and large) throughout the song. I am going to
give you the main riff (and the minor variation) first and then just tab out each variation and at what lyric it starts with.
At any other point assume it is still the main riff or main riff v2 unless it is the chorus.
This tab is mainly just the rhythm guitar.


First two notes:

e|-[7]------|
B|-----[7]--|

Then hit random harmonics and make noise.

Does anyone know who sings the backing vocals?
I miss you, girl. You're all that makes me true.
