                             Gracious - Ben Howard
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Clark Williams
E-mail: clrk.williams@gmail.com

I Don't know why this song has missed out on a decent tab, I avoided it because the 
other tab indicated a awkward
tuning but its not like that at all, It is very similar to Bens normal tuning but with 
two strings down to F.
This tab is 100% accurate, and relatively easy to play.

Repeat until bridge

The timing in the chorus is tricky to master, It may be easier to just simplify and 
ignore one of the harmonics, but Ben plays like this:

CHORUS

c|-----+12----------+12--------+12--------0----0----------------------------|
F|-----+12----------+12--------+12-------------0----------------------------|
G|--------+12----------+12--------+12-------7--7----------------------------|

c|----5---------5-----5---------5-----5---------5-----5---------5-----------|
F|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C|--5-----5---------5-----5---------5-----5---------5-----5-----------------|



REPEAT THE VERSE:

c|----------0--------------0-------------0-------------0--------------------|
F|----------------4--------------4-------------4-------------4--------------|
G|------0-----0----------0---0---------0---0---------0---0------------------|
c|----0---------0------0-------0-----0-------0-----0-------0----------------|
F|--4-----4----------4-------------0-------------0--------------------------|
C|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

THEN BRIDGE:

c|----------0----------------0---------------0---------------0--------------|
F|----------------7----------------2---------------4---------------4--------|
G|------0-----0----------0-----0---------0-----0---------0-----0------------|
c|----0---------0------0---------0-----0---------0-----0---------0----------|
F|--7-----7----------2-----2---------4-----4---------4-----4----------------|
C|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|


THEN CHORUS

c|-----+12----------+12--------+12--------0----0----------------------------|
F|-----+12----------+12--------+12-------------0----------------------------|
G|--------+12----------+12--------+12-------7--7----------------------------|

c|----5---------5-----5---------5-----5---------5-----5---------5-----------|
F|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C|--5-----5---------5-----5---------5-----5---------5-----5-----------------|


This builds up until the end: Rearrange and change things as you like, there are lots of 
variations going on in here, just learn them and play what sounds good.


c|---------0---------------0---------------0---------------0---0------------|
F|-----4--------------4---------------4---------------4------4-4------------|
G|---0-----------0---------------0---------------0-------------0------------|
c|-------------------------------------------------------------0------------|
F|-4-----4-----4----4----4-----4----4----4-----4----4----4-----4------------|
C|-------------------------------------------------------------0------------|

c|---------0---------------0---------------0---------------0---0------------|
F|-----4--------------4---------------4---------------4------4-4------------|
G|---0-----------0---------------0---------------0-------------0------------|
c|-------------------------------------------------------------0------------|
F|-0-----0-----0----0----0-----0----0----0-----0----0----0-----0------------|
C|-------------------------------------------------------------0------------|

c|---------0---------------0---------------0--------------0----0------------|
F|-----4--------------4--------------------7----------------9--9------------|
G|---0-----------0--------------------0--------------0---------0------------|
c|-------------------------------------------------------------0------------|
F|-4-----4-----4----4----4----4s7---7----7----7s9--9----9------9------------|
C|-------------------------------------------------------------0------------|

c|---------0---------------0---------------0---------------0---0------------|
F|-----4--------------4---------------4---------------4------4-4------------|
G|---0-----------0---------------0---------------0-------------0------------|
c|-------------------------------------------------------------0------------|
F|-4-----4-----4----4----4-----4----4----4-----4----4----4-----4------------|
C|-------------------------------------------------------------0------------|

c|---------0---------------0---------------0---------------0---0------------|
F|-----4--------------4s2-------------2----------2s4---------4-4------------|
G|---0-----------0---------------0--------------------0--------0------------|
c|-------------------------------------------------------------0------------|
F|-0-----0-----0----0----------0----0----0-----0----0----0-----0------------|
C|-------------------------------------------------------------0------------|

Then its the same pattern but pick and go:

c|-----0----0---0--------0----0---0--------0----0---0----------0---0--------|
F|-----4------4-4--------0------4-4--------4------4-4------4-----4-4--------|
G|---0-0--------0------0-0--------0------0-0--------0----0---------0--------|
c|-----0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------------0--------|
F|-4---4--4-----4--4-4---4--4-----4--4-4---4--4-----4--4-----4-----4--------|
C|-----0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------------0--------|

c|-----0----0---0--------0----0---0--------0----0---0----------0---0--------|
F|-----4------4-4--------0------4-4--------4------4-4------4-----4-4--------|
G|---0-0--------0------0-0--------0------0-0--------0----0---------0--------|
c|-----0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------------0--------|
F|-0---0--0-----0--0-0---0--0-----0--0-0---0--0-----0--0-----0-----0--------|
C|-----0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------------0--------|

Add variations to this, like sliding up to the 7th and 9th frets like above.
Also on the high c string there are a couple of shifts between 5th and 2nd fret in this 
last pick and go part,
Just try them out because to tab it is a big job but its easy enough to get the feel of.
