Ben Howard  - GRACIOUS
(What a beautiful song)

Hello everyone, thanks for looking at my tab, this is my version of the song.
I heard this song for the first time today after one of my students asked if I could 
teach it to her and I loved it.
Hopefully you guys can learn it as well as Jess has!
See what you think.


Lets get started:

TUNING (ALTERNATE)
I believe he uses open F tuning (CFCFAC), with a 2nd fret capo

However I didnt have a capo when figuring this song out, so I have used open G6 tuning 
(DGDEBD) with no capo and it sounds awesome!

Do use DGDEBD and dont be put off by alternate tunings, they may take a bit of getting 
used to at the beginning, but eventually you will be able to tune your guitar up and down 
easily. If in doubt, use a decent guitar tuner to help you.
