Title:          Smooth Criminal
Tabbed by:      CAiNsKi
 

Note: This tab is not exactly what the artist plays, as I believe
version. Your guitar needs to be tuned slightly differently from
the original song (as you can see on the tab). However, it is
compatible with both the cd version of the song and the other
tabs on this site, and sounds just as great. So here goes.
