Old Pine – Ben Howard

Such an awesome song! Such an awesome artist, hope this tab does some justice to it.

This is the version I play in this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cW7OgV7CANc&feature=channel_video_title
Give it a watch please! And a cheeky wee like or favourite if you’re a legend.

Tuning: CGCGGC.
Cape: 5th fret.

Ben only plays this version of the verse when he plays the song live acoustically. On 
the record he plays verse 2 twice.

On the third play of this riff in verse two Ben changes the second part very slightly:

‘Free as the birds that fly here’

[Outro]

The outro is basically strumming verse one, with all the pull-offs and whatnot on a 
different strum. On the recording of the song this is played in two parts so each are more 
pronounced, but when Ben plays it live this is what he does.

C|-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0---|0--0--0-0--0-0-0--0---|0--0--0-0---0-0-0--0---|

I haven’t put in the actual strumming patterns for the outro or the chorus but these are 
fairly easy to pick up just by playing the song and trail and error.
Hope you enjoy the song!
And check me out on youtube too please 

Pretty perfect tab! Just been playing along then and I'm sure he picks the G string instead of the C string on the last note of the first bar though. I think that's what MrDanee22 means as well. Anyway, keep tabbing :)
