Newton Faulkner - Teardrop
          tabbed by Alex Stevens

	This man has an incredible talent for the accoustic,
	it's a great song, I hope you enjoy it, feel free to rate.
	It's a pretty hard song to learn since your mind is battling with
	4 things at once...(who said men can't multi-task??)
        It is very satisfying song to be able to play so don't give up.

4. EXTRAS:

Everynow and again, one of these are chucked in.  He adds in loads of stuff at the end too.

That's an upwards strum with the middle index finger,
pulling off with 3rd 'hammering' finger just as you reach
the top of the 'cascade' if you like.
Make it prominent, then leave it to ring into the next bar.

Db|------p0---h7-p0-h5-p0-h5-h7--|--p0--h7-p0-h5-p0-h5-p0-----|

First Bar shows the extra bass bit, I find it's easiest to strum it.
Second Bar shows the outro line for the melody, it's only slightly different.
