There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The Moon
The Swell Season

After playing through the other tab that's up here, all the chord structures
seemed correct, but it sounds better with a capo on the second fret so I
figured I'd take their tab and just write in the chords after capo.  All
chords are relative to capo.

As well, a large part of the song is simply the strumming style mixed with
all of the muted strums on the strings (and that awesome reverb), so be sure
to listen to the actual song to know the general pattern.

Capo II

Fmaj7	Am

Fmaj7			Am
Cut the bonds with the moon
And let the dogs gather
Burn the gauze in the spoon
And suck the poison up

G	 F	Am
And bleed 

Fmaj7			Am
Shut the door to the moon
And let the birds gather
Play no more with the fool
And let the souls wander

G	F	Am
And bleed
G	F	Am
From the soul 

Em	F		C/G
A slow hurt.. and it breaks us..
And so down,
Down, down and so plain
So down
When you play some more it seems so
And my friends are past this game
Of breakdowns
And our friends that are lost at sea..
Throw down
And I'll break the wasted space
Slow down, slow down,
If you don't slow down, slow down
If you don't slow down, slow.. 

Fmaj7	Am

Fmaj7			Am
Cut the bonds with the moon
And watch the dogs gather

    Fmaj7  Am	  G     Em   C/G
B|----1-----1-----3-----0-----1-  The C/G can be played as
G|----2-----2-----4-----0-----0-  a normal C, but I like the
D|----3-----2-----5-----2-----2-  fullness the C/G gives
A|----3-----0-----5-----2-----3-  especially at that particular
E|----1-----x-----3-----0-----3-  part.
