GUNS AND HORSES - Ellie Goulding 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: rockett97

Tuning: Standard EBGDAE

This is the acoustic version of Ellie Goulding's 'Guns And Horses'.
I tabbed this from a live acoustic performance she did on Dutch national radio. 
The video of this performance is to be found here:

Then, straight into the

"It's time to come clean.."
E--0---0---0-| 
B--1---3---1-| 
G--0---0---2-| (x2)
D--2---4---2-| 
A--3---5---0-|
E------------|

(from here on, she holds each chord for one count, 
so she's not strumming like she was. 
I put down the amount of downstrokes for each chord.)

E--0-------0-------0------| 
B--1-------3-------1------| 
G--0-(x4)--0-(x4)--2-(x8)-| 
D--2-------4-------2------| 
A--3-------5-------0------|
E-------------------------|

"(I see your face in every)
star"

E--0-------0-------0-| 
B--1-------3-------0-| 
G--0-(x4)--0-(x4)--0-| 
D--2-------4-------2-| 
A--3-------5-------0-|
E------------------0-|

(on the last chord (e minor), the single downstrokes end, 
and she starts strumming again)

Chorus

"(But I wish i could)
feel it all for you"
E|-0--0---0---0-------| 
B|-0--0---0---0-------| 
G|-9--0---11--12(p11)-| (x3)
D|-9--12--12--12------|
A|-7--12--10--10------| 
E|-8--10--0---10------| 

E|-0--10--0--| 
B|-0--10--0--| 
G|-9--12--11-| 
D|-9--12--12-|
A|-7--10--10-| 
E|-8--10--0--| 

"I'd do it all for you"
"whoa-o"
E|-0--0---0---0-------| 
B|-0--0---0---0-------| 
G|-9--0---11--12(p11)-| (x4)
D|-9--12--12--12------|
A|-7--12--10--10------| 
E|-8--10--0---10------|

"whoa-o, whoa-o"
E|-0--0---0---0-------| 
B|-0--0---0---0-------| 
G|-9--0---11--12(p11)-| (x4)
D|-9--12--12--12------|
A|-7--12--10--10------| 
E|-8--10--0---10------|

Ellie plays the same chords in this last part, 
but she picks the notes of each chord separately,
just listen to this acoustic version and you'll know what I mean by that. 
Same chords, and picking pattern should be easy enough to figure out by yourself.

This tab is great. The only things that doesn't seem quite right are the fingerplucking at the intro, and maybe the bridge (it seems to alternate between a minor and e minor).

I put here an alternative version of the intro based on this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5V0NegnNE8


E| ......... .........
B| ..8_..8_. ..0_..0_.
G| ....9...9 ....0...0
D| ..A_..A_. .........
A| 0_...0... ..A_..A_.
E| ......... 0_...0...


Legenda:
A corresponds to 10, B to 11, C to 12, etc..

Ah, also! Maybe the prechorus does this instead?

"..I left my house,.."
E|-----0---0---0-|
B|-1---0---5---5-|
G|-0---0---0---0-| (x2)
D|-2---0---5---0-|
A|-3---2---4---4-|
E|-----3---5---5-|
