                    Hourglass - Catfish and the Bottlemen
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Rory H
E-mail: Rdeh10@googlemail.com

Tuning: EADGBe

*CAPO ON 2*
(Notes all relative to capo)
Van plays this in open D tuning with capo on 4, this just saves you that extra effort without
compromising any of the song's quality :)
This is a beautiful song from CFATB's debut album, 'The Balcony' and a very simple one 
to play. I thought it
was about time someone tabbed it, so why not? If you have any corrections or 
improvements, feel free to Email
me or comment and I'll get right on it! Enjoy!

Clearly wrong. Chords are good but needs no capo and completely incorrect verse. Transpose 2 frets up to get the correct sound as on the studio version.
