TITLE: Misirlou
Artist: Dick Dale

You'll want to tremelo pick (really fast, but even) for the entire song.
With these accents:
 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &
 ^     ^     ^

For the high E part I've tabbed a variation on the melody that may or
may not more accurately represent what Dick Dale plays.  Feel free to
play with it and mix things up.

  (Am        G        F                 E              )

Then repeat the Main Riff on High E again.

And the ending is just an E major chord.
