STARTING NOW by Ingrid Michaelson
Standard Tuning: EADGBe
No Capo Required

This tab is pretty simple as long as you follow it carefully. Im not sure its 100% 
but its very close. Listen to the song too for strumming/plucking techniques.

INTRO:

                      ^REPEAT FOUR TIMES^


I want to crawl back inside my mother's womb
I want to shut out all the lights in this room
I want to start fresh, like a baby in a sink
Scrub away all these thoughts that i think of you


INTERLUDE:

E|--2---------------3-------------------------------------------|

                      ^REPEAT FOUR TIMES^

So life moves slowly when you're waiting for it to boil
Feel like i watch from 6 feet under the soil
Still want to hold you and kiss behind your ears
But i re count the countless tears that i lost for you

PRE-CHORUS:

D         A              Bm  G
  But before you finally go *(before you go)*

D          A                   G..... hold
  There's one thing you should know: That I promise -

Hey, and thanks for a good tab. But, as you say, it isn't 100 % correct, but that's allright. Underneath, I have a correction for the intro, otherwise, good job.

i have a correction for the intro part, i play it as i have underneath.
So the E string is basically playing the bass part of the intro while the D string is kind of keeping the tempo.
& you slide your E from 3rd to 7th fret, so you get that "slide sound" as you hear in the track.

hope that helps a little! :)

Samuelf's way is the correct way. It sounds exactly like on the album if you're doing it right, and is easiest to do.

r0kstar--the 7th and 5th frets are easier to play and sound more like the record if you play them 0h2 and 0 on the A string. But otherwise they're both right, so.

Thanks!
