Ballad of a Crystal Man By Donovan

This is my first attempt at creating a tab, I've chosen this song because i haven't been 
to find it in tab form anywhere before.
I know it might not be exactly how Donovan plays it, but this is how I play the song and 
think it sounds pretty nice.
Hope you find this useful.

Standard Tuning

Capo 4th Fret

Good tab man - would give it 5 stars but I don't think Donovan plays it with the hammer-on, or at least not in the version of the song I have:) Keep up the good work though!!
