-VICTORY DANCE-
My Morning Jacket     -Transcribed by Randel Burchfield

The guitar parts are sparse for this song.  Carl is the only guitar in this song as Jim just sings.  There is no guitar in the song until Jim sings the word "Power" so that is where the tab pics up.  Its pretty easy to pick up and follow along so plug in and crank the stereo.  Carl uses slight distortion and heavy reverb for his parts.



Power                   Hey do you know how it work

Improvised guitar noise finishes out the song.  Enjoy and have fun!

Sorry, had to use two posts... and I forgot to mention, tune down one half step from standard tuning and don't use a capo.
Whoever runs the MMJ tab site feel free to add it there.  ENJOY!!!
