Traffic - Stereophonics From the album, "Word Gets Around" (1997) *LP Version* [Transcribed by TNT SHWE] Notes: I first heard this on the radio and I liked it immediately. This is a real good catchy tune and another good example of poetry with music! Play this acoustically for the best results! In two of the verses there is a part in which the hammer-on and pull-off effect takes action like in the Intro section. These parts are marked by an asterisk (*) next to the chord (listen to the track hear what I'm on about). Recommended Chord Positions: Am xO221O C x32O1O Dsus2 xxO23O F/E x3321O
