                             Firefly - Ed Sheeran
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Josh Richardson

Tuning: E Standard EADGBe (no capo)


This song is all done with finger-picking, so put your plectrum down!
It's easier without one too, and it sounds fuller.

Wicked tab mate! One thing; I find if you play the following pre-chorus it leads nicely into the chorus. Brilliant tab though

Okay, that "Let ring" ended up in the wrong place, but you get what I meant :P

Wicked tab, spot on as far as i can see its just to do with the pauses which is not something thats tabbed to often, just listen to it.

Id find it a lot more helpful if you had all the lyrics along with it all though. Great job though.
