                         *Bon Iver - Holocene*
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: nathan7402

Standard Tuning

*CAPO 6TH FRET*


*This is not how he plays it (He uses Nashville tuning), and in
the recording there's more than one guitar, but it sounds good like this
and its easier to play. The tab is not 100% accurate (I couldn't quite
figure out how to get the rhyhtm right), but you can figure it out and go
from there.

*With much credit to Katie Boeck (and the other people who have tabbed
similar versions)--I originally learned this from her lesson here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siB-EZls5pA&feature=relmfu  and then
decided to tab it out.

*Also, check out her cover of the song--its very good--here:

*BTW this is my first tab*

Then you basically repeat the ENTIRE pattern 2 more times for verses 2 and 3.
