I wasn't totally convinced by the couple of tabs I've found for Halloween so I worked 
out. 99% certain that it's right; the chorus might not be perfect, but it sounds good 
One of my favourite ever Ash songs, and it's a B side - crazy eh?

Can be played without a capo (written immediately below) but the Fm to Bm is trickily 
or more easily with a capo on the second fret (written afterwards).

I love this song too, bought intergalactic sonic sevens last week and was happily surprised to find such a great b-side.It's my favourite song of the moment.Pretty nice job overall, but i think for F minor throughout, you should have F sharp minor. Try it out. Thanks for doing the tab!
