This tab took a while to figure out then write out- so please enjoy it!
I know it's not gonna be perfect, but I feel i came relatively close.
Also, I based this tab off a live performance... so reference it!

Tuning:Open E (EBEG#Be). He actually tunes it to open D (DADF#Ad) then sticks
a capo on the 2nd fret, which makes it easier on the strings. All notes
are relative to the capo by the way.

Final note- the whole song is finger-picked, which kinda seems necessary for the tone of 
this song.

[Intro] Bass notes help it flow nicely.

[Bridge] the 'let go' part. this is the only part he strums so listen for the
pattern, and this is the only part I'm really unsure of (it starts at 2:27
btw)The first 2 chords should be right, but after that I'm wrong- oh well.
e|-12--11--12--11------|
B|-0---0---0---0-------|
G|-12--10--12--10------|
D|-0---0---0---0-------|
A|-0---0---0---0-------|
E|---------------------|

This is my best guess which isn't very good lol
e|-5--4--|
B|-0--0--|
G|-5--3--| repeated a lot
D|-0--0--|
A|-0--0--|
E|-------|

After this he does the chorus once more, then intro to finish it.

Enjoy! and feel free to comment and rate.

By the way, I stupidly wrote down a part wrong... twice... so the chord at the end of the verses and chorus actually goes:

e |------0-|
B |-----0--|
G#|----4---|
E |---0----|
B |--x-----|
E |-5------|
I don't know why I didn't catch that earlier. My bad.

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. the Third string is the wrong tuning and does not even sound accurate, the alternative tuning broke my third string instantly
