    Hey Guys,
    My second band is a light rock band. I have no problems with any of the songs except for Sunny Came Home. There are alot of changes in that song.
    Does anyone have the tab?
    Thanks,
    Vegaas

    You the man!
    Thank you very much. That song has been driving me nuts
     
  4. Your Welcome.

    Enjoy!

    I've got some 750+ pieces of sheet music
    and glad to share once in a while.
