CUYAHOGA (Version 1)



There are two ways to play the intro riff.  The more accurate way is to tune
your low E string down to D.  If you want to be able to play normal chord
shapes, though, this way is better:

G(3) --2------2----|
D(4) 0-----0-----0-|
              A(5) |--5-----5-5-----|--2-------2-----|--5-5---5-5-----|
              E(6) |3-----3-----3---|0-----0-------0-|3-----3-----3---|

      D                 G         Em          G    (repeat throughout verse)

This is what to do for the "this is where we walked..." part:

     Em               Bm                Em               F#m
