Ok so this is my first tab of all time, so you guys have to bare with me because I just 
I'm not very good at making them. This is Matt Nathanson - Little Victories. After 
his live performances I am 99.99% sure this is how the song is played.

Capo 2

  |    C    | | C/F |     |  G   |

e-0-0--0-0-0--0---0-0------3-3-3-|
B-1-1--1-1-1--1---1-1------3-3-3-|
G-0-0--0-0-0--0---2-2------0-0-0-|   <---- Intro and Verses.
D-2-2--2-2-2--2h3-3-3-0----0-0-0-|
A-3-3--3-3-3--3---3-3------2-2-2-|
E------------------------3-3-3-3-|

This is played twice at the beginning of the song and all the way through each verse. So 
play it through;

This time, I'll be sailing
No more bailing boats for me
I'll be out there on the sea
Just my confidence and me..

Then;

This time, I'll have no fear
I'll be standing strong and tall
Turn my back towards them all

The rythme for the chorus is too long for me to show, so you guys are just gonna have to 
it out from the chords.


 |Am|  |G|  |  F  |
e-0-0--3-3--1-1-1-1------|
B-1-1--3-3--1-1-1-1------|
G-2-2--0-3--2-2-2-2------| (x2)  <---- Chorus. On the last F, you strum it a
D-2-2--0-0--3-3-3-3------|             few more times.
A-0-0--2-2--3-3-3-3------|
E------3-3--1-1-1-1------|

You play this part through;

I'll be awful sometimes,
Weakened to my knees.

And then it's the sort of interlude part which I'm not sure I have 100% but I think it 
like this:

 |C/F| | C |  | F |
e-0-0--0-0-0--1-1-1-|
B-1-1--1-1-1--1-1-1-|
G-0-0--0-0-0--2-2-2-|
D-3-3--2-2-2--2-2-2-|
A-3-3--3-3-3--3-3-3-|           <---- So this is the little 'interlude' part
E-------------1-1-1-|                 after '..weakened to my knees'.
                                      |
And I'll learn to get by...           |
                                      |
  |   C    |  | C/F  |                |
e-0-0--0-0-0--0---0-0----|       <----
B-1-1--1-1-1--1---1-1----|
G-0-0--0-0-0--0---2-2----| (x2)
D-2-2--2-2-2--2h3-3-3-0--|
A-3-3--3-3-3--3---3-3----|
E------------------------|

On the little victories.

So now you have the verses and the chorus + the interlude. Now all that is left is the 
outro with the violin etc.

  |Am| |G|  |  F  |
e-0-0--3-3--1-1-1-1----|
B-1-1--3-3--1-1-1-1----|
G-2-2--0-0--2-2-2-2----|   (x2)
D-2-2--0-0--3-3-3-3----|
A-0-0--2-2--3-3-3-3----|
E------3-3--1-1-1-1----|

   | F |  |C|  |G|
e|-1-1-1--0-0--3-3---|
B|-1-1-1--1-1--3-3---|
G|-2-2-2--0-0--0-0---|   (x2)
D|-3-3-3--2-2--0-0---|
A|-3-3-3--3-3--2-2---|
E|-1-1-1-------3-3---|

  |   C    |  | C/F  |
e-0-0--0-0-0--0---0-0----|
B-1-1--1-1-1--1---1-1----|
G-0-0--0-0-0--0---2-2----| (x3)
D-2-2--2-2-2--2h3-3-3-0--|
A-3-3--3-3-3--3---3-3----|
E------------------------|



Hope this helped, obviously it being my first tab it's not going to be as good, 
someone else can re-do it and make a better job. This song is amazing and pretty easy to play 
you get used to it.

Happy guitaring!
