Much trickier than first appears, but once you get the picking pattern it all falls in
to place. As with all of Ben's songs it's fun to play and is in an awkward tuning.
Because of the strange capo positioning all notes are NOT relative to the capo 
positioning, but to nut, i.e. 0th fret. Hope that makes sense and enjoy!

P.s. All thanks to Tom Wheeler who sent me off with the basics to refine!

Great tab up until the chords, where some indicate for you to place your fingers on frets which are below the capo such as 4 and 6. I know there is a string which is left open and I assumed it was the top one. So why are there these strange chords? Cheers mate

yep you've got it. They only go below the capo on the top string as it wouldn't make any difference on any other strings (probably guessed that yourself)! As to the ridiculously awkward chords, I'm afraid you'd have to ask Ben... if you watch any videos of him playing it, you'll see he goes below the capo. Hope that cleared a few things.

But what I don't get is that it doesn't make any difference putting the 4th fret down for example if it's not going to make any difference to the sound of the chord as the bottom string is capoed down.... Thanks again
