C F A# D# G C
Bon Iver - Skinny Love
For Emma, Forever Ago

transcribed by Damian Smith

Tuning C G E G C c, although the recording is flat by about 20 cents.
I've only sketched the chords and structure - I believe in simplicity
and individual interpretation. It's worth the retune. Beautiful song.

Outstanding! The other tabs have been close, but this is the first one to get the tuning right. Not your standard open C tuning. Great job!

oelfass - With a tuner. E string down 2 steps, A string down one step, D string up one step, G string remains G, B string up one step and e string down 2 steps.
