Devotion - Ellie Goulding 
Tabbed by: Alex Ryl 
E-mail: alex_ryl99@hotmail.com 
Tuning: Standard, Capo 3rd fret

**UPDATE**

I've added the hammer-on's heard in the recorded version. She doesn't play them live, but thought I'd 
throw them in anyway. 
******************************************************************************************************

So I've tabbed it out how I play it based on her live version. I've put the chord shape to use
above the tab so it should make it easier. After what I call the the
chorus, I just strum Am (or improvise with finger-picking, 
and that's basically the whole song. For the F it's the Barre chord 
shape.Also, she doesn't do the hammer-on's in her live version, hence why I haven't included 
them. The pre-chorus is a finger-picking pattern that I have represented on the tab. 

Alternatively you can just strum the chords and it sounds really good too.

Enjoy.

swear the hammer-on is the same as it is here, but with the e & B strings, not E and A??
