Bon Iver - Beach Baby (Blood Bank EP)

This is my first post and as an intense Bon-ite I can assure you this
tab is nearly flawless...

Standard Tuning

C =    332010
F =    133210
Em = 022010
Am = X02210
G/Am = 3X2210 (just play an Am, with your pinky on the G)
D/F# = 2X0230

Strumming pattern (strum with hand, no pick)- 1 strum down on the bass note with 
thumb, 2 strums down on the chord 1 strum back up...repeat -again, listen to the song
and if you're a remotely good musician, you'll get it...

Letter with a dash (ex. C-) means play chord an extra measure, you'll
get it if you listen to the song.


C- F Em-
C- Em- Am F C-
Em- Am G/Am C

C-                          F        Em-
when you're out, tell your lucky one
C-                   Em-   Am         F              C-
to know that you'll leave, don't you lock when you're fleeing
Em-                   Am   G/Am
I'd like not to hear keys

C-                    F           Em-
only hold till your coffee warms,
C-                   Em-
but don't hurry and speed
Am       F        C-       Em-                Am     G/Am
once a time put a tongue, in your ear on the beach
F                           Am  G/Am D/F#  F  Em- -
and you clutched clicking heels

*Outro* w/ slide guitars

C- F Em-
C- Em- Am F C-
Em- Am G/Am F Am G/Am D/F# F Em- 
C- F Em-...fade out...

Changed name of one chord which was called G/Am, but which was in fact an Am with a G in the bass, making it Am/G. Review and vote

i'm pretty sure the last line should include a dash with the F chord and with the D/F#. otherwise, perfect! thanks!

If you try to play this along with the song, you will hear that this is not even close to Bin Iver's version. It has no e-minor chord... It's way different.

Not even close is a big exaggeration, this is pretty close, but I agree, it's not an Em, at least in the way you say it is. I play it as C/E, or C with the open 6th string.
