                                               Keep Your Head Up - Ben Howard
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Nick Adams

A good song, and once you've got your head around the main riff it's simple
to play. To keep things tidy I have omitted the more complicated strumming
from the second stanza of the verse onwards, and given a solid background
to work against. So when the energy picks up, just play stronger and looser.
Oh yea, watch the tuning. Drop the bottom E down to D; drop the B down to A.
Cheers.

Tuning: DADGAe

@leeburton1986 yeah but it's quite inevitable to become commercial nowadays. between all those stupid kids singing poor written pop songs you can barely get some attention..

I want to post or [tab]
