Mean Little Seed Tab

More Califone Tabs

Artist: Califone
  Song: Mean Little Seed

Tabbed by: Starcat

Open E tuning  (easiest to do open-D:  DAD#AD with capo on 2nd; tab relative to capo)

*As with most Califone songs, as you play this main riff/melody, you also do a light strumming of the open strings to affect that open tuning drone, which I won’t painstakingly tab out here.  Just play this riff and strum around until it sounds right.
