I got the same tab in a GD-songbook, still...I don't hear
the Fsus...If anyone is playing it this way, how are you
shaping it?

what book in paeticular has this, is it one of the anthologies or is there a book with everything in it, i'd rather get tabs than the anthologies but a book with every song ever tabbed would be really cool

Jerry doesn't really play the F Sus. That is Bobby's part but it is there for sure.
