Title: Baby Blue
Album: Straight Up/Greatest Hits

Words and music by: Pete Ham
Original tab by: Robert Leatherman
Revised tab by: Chris Clark

There's no need for a capo to play this breakup song (also covered by
Aimee Mann), but it'd definitely a barre-chord monster. The fills and
solos are tabbed for (cutaway) acoustic guitar, so stretch and hammer
and fool around with different fingerings if the notes feel awkward on
electric.
