"She's My Ride Home" by Blue October
(Transcription by AggiePhil--phil@phildorsett.com)



Notes:
• Since this song has several guitar parts and several different elements going on throughout, I've transcribed it as a compilation tab. In doing so, I changed the fingerings for how the Intro theme is played to fit better with the rest of the acoustic chord fingerings. If you want to play just the hollow body guitar part that plays the Intro theme throughout the song, the fingerings for that are listed down at the bottom, below the compilation tab. But if you're just playing this song by yourself, you'll probably want to go with this compilation tab. Alright...enjoy!



Intro
(Pick)
• Repeat throughout intro
• The three chords that you finger here are x10xx8x, x8xx6x, and x7xx5x; they are roughly shaped like a C chord
• Due to the delay effect in this part, the exact order in which you play the strings isn't all that crucial--it's kind of up to you
