                 "HEARD THEM STIRRING" off album "Fleet Foxes"(2008)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Les Gibson

Tuning: Standard

There are two guitar parts in this song, and often they are buried beneath
the deep vocal harmonies, and so are hard to make out. Ive tried my best
to tab them as accurately as possible...

I'll divide it into sections to make it easier to follow.

Thanks for giving us good tabs, man! Keep it up. I appreciate error-free, and orderly tabs because they seem hard to find.
