Ben Howard - The Fear

My first tab, Ben plays this with open C tuning which is a pain for those 
who don't like to keep re-tuning their guitar. For this reason I have tried
to recreate the song in standard EBGDAE tuning. I am aware that it is far
from perfect but should be a good foundation to work from.

Enjoy.
