                      Jack Steadman / Bombay Bicycle Club - If I Could
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Harry Yeates

I'm posting this mainly to clear some stuff up, and because It's the most accurate tab
of this song. First things first, THIS IS NOT A BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB SONG! "If I Could"
was written by Jack Steadman (lead guitarist and vocalist from Bombay Bicycle Club), 
when he was 14 years old, pre-Bombay. He had his own solo project and released plenty of songs
before forming Bombay Bicycle Club. Search on YouTube, Jack Steadman - If I Could, and 
you'll find most of his self-released early stuff.

Over the course of a week, I managed to learn and finally write this tab for the whole
song. I am posting it here as Bombay Bicycle Club rather than Jack Steadman in the hope
that more people will find it and learn the track, as I have seen on YouTube many people 
wanting to learn the track. Here you go folks, enjoy!
