Author/Artist: Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds
Title: What Would You Say 
Album: Live at Luther College
Transcribed by: Adam Strachn
Email: CookieMonster912@hotmail.com

This is a good song. I added the end of riff
that is in the Luther College version.
This is a riff that Dave does at the end of 
What Would You Say on the Luther College cd.
He does some little ab libbing at the end of the 
song. And of course Tim goes off on his amazing 
little solo thing. I have that tabbed out also!!!!!
This is a great lil thing just to mess around with and 
show people at a party or something. The triplet time
thing might take some getting used to but you should
get it pretty easy. It's mostly built off the same chords. 
Any questions or comments just e-mail me.
