Promise by Ben Howard
DGDAGD Tuning
No capo

The tuning and tab have been worked out from live and recorded versions of the song.
The last section (section 3) of the tab, which Ben Howard plays in a percussive style,
sounds mostly right but is not exactly how he plays it.


Intro:

Same as section 1, but in the 4th bar play fret 9 on the 5th string rather than fret 11
as played in the first 3 bars. In some live recordings, section 2 below is used as part
of the intro.
