Artist: José Gonzales

Song:   Fold

Album:  In Our Nature (2007)

I´ve been trying to learn this song for a long time now (ofcourse not the whole time),
and this is strictly by ear, because there hasn´t been any good tabs of this song out there.
This song is not 100% correct of how José plays it, but it´is as close as I can get to it.
Hopefully this will help you learn to play this song, see it as a guide as there are no
tab books with José. Also, this song needs patience, patience, patience, patience and a whole
lot of feeling and lots of patience (if you didn´t get it the first 4 times). I´ve tried to
put up some guidelines in this tab, but if you don´t understand, send me a e-mail 
below).
I will try to answer as fast as I can. If I don´t, I´m probably dead or drunk.... or busy!

Tuning: B A D F# B E

Verse:

                   Right hand:
                   During the verse I play B, A and D string with my thumb and
                   the F# with my middle finger and B with my ringfinger.

                   Left hand:
                   Middlefinger on A, indexfinger on D and making the hammer-pulloff
                   with your ringfinger. This only work in the first part, but then you
                   have to adjust and make the pulloff with your pinky.


                   The verse consists of 3 chords, I´m not gonna write down the whole
                   progression. You have to listen to the song and learn it.

Great tab, sir!

I think the "please hold me back" part should go like this:


------------------------------------------
-0--------0----------0-------0---0---(0)--
------0-----0--(0)-----0-------0----------
--(0)---0-----0--------------6-7-6--------
-9--------9----------7---(7)--------7-----
------------------------------------------
