I Thought I Knew Ya
By Martin Sexton


Chords : Craig Eddy

~Martins tuned down a 1/2 step~

* Keep in mind Martin plays w/o a pick and he constantly uses his signature percussive 
every other beat*

** Martin sometimes hammers on the B String 3rd Fret after the A Chord (middle finger)**

*** If you've played Martin's music before, you'll get the idea....he's constantly 
out his Bass lines
      and basic hammer on and pull offs from the chords provided.***
