Artist: Kate Bush
Song: Delius (Song of summer)
Tabbed by: DJ
4th April 2013

Inspired by a Ken Russell's 1968 biographical film,
'Song of summer', based on the memoirs of Eric Fenby.
Fenby strived to transcribe Delius's latter works, by the blind,
paralysed, composer, who was suffering the effects of syphilis.

Tuning: Standard
CAPO: 2nd fret (Sounds in key of B)

Strum the Amaj7 chords, and fingerpick for the rest of the song.
