Thanks a lot for tabbing this it seems perfectly accurate. One question: I have the Ben Howard strumming style down, you know picking whilst strumming or whatever. But I'm really used to using this technique whilst having the bass note free so to speak. In the main riff whenever you are supposed to play 3-2-0 on the A string it feels like I'm stumbling over the strings and that it feels really empty in terms of the sound I'm getting. Did you have this problem and if so how'd you fix it?
