War of the Worlds - Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tom Birthwright

Tuning: Standard, Capo 2nd fret.

I've added to the great intro that's already on this site, thanks Sophie.
It seems quite accurate to me, but it's my first tab, so any comments or 
corrections are welcome, enjoy! 
(Thanks to Brand New for spotting the small mistake - fixed now!)
 
In the bridge and subsequent verse, when strumming the C C/B Am7, the C/B
chord is just there to help the transition from C to Am7 and so should be short. 

Chords used: C, C/B, Am7, Em, F , G
C/B = x20010 (I don't know if this is the real name for this chord) 
F=(1)03210
G=(3)x5430
/ = slide up

But I think I found a mistake. For the verses, you put 1 on b and 1 on d but it should be 1 on b and 2 on d like the ami7. Just edit that bit.
