Alkaline Trio — Donner Party

Alkaline Trio - Donner Party
Tabbed by - Andrew Biles
Standard Tuning

The amount of strums may be a little off in the intro, but it's the basis of the
chords played and roughly how long in comparison to each other they are played for
There's lots of little riffs in this song, so most of the riffs have little x_
beside them indicating how many times played.
Riffs with lyrics under just show where the chord changes are and you will have
to work out the strumming patterns.
