Shanghai by Andy Mckee
Tuning: E B D G B D
For this song, capo the first five (lowest) strings on the second fret. This tab is
relative to the capo. I figured most of it out by ear, but I had a little help from another
tab on Ultimate Guitar as well Andy Mckee's video on Youtube. Some of the chords during 
the bridge are pretty difficult to hold, but you'll get it through practice and 
endurance. Enjoy!

The first pulloff in B (4p0) should be 2p0 based on the youtube video im looking at.
