Hi.
Here's number eleven of tabs for the song Heartbeats by José Gonzalez.
And all the other versions say that they are correct...
I think it is based on the Travis picking style: use your thumb on each count. So the 
pattern for your picking (right) hand is pip pmpi|p pmpipi
(p=thumb, i=index finger, m=middle finger) In the spaces is a hammer, played by your 
left hand. Be sure that every half count gets one note, to get the right flow.
Especially the hammered notes (4h5) and the next note played by the thumb give the for 
this song so typical effect:
they are on a different string but it is the same note! Good luck!

HEARTBEATS              José González

Tuning: (D-tuning, Capo on 1st fret or tune ½ step higher = Eb-tuning)
 Eb Bb Eb G Bb Eb Use a spanish guitar!

One night to be confused
One night to speed up truth
We had a promise made
Four hands and then away

Both under influence
We had divine scent
To know what to say
Mind is a razorblade

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
For me, no

One night of magic rush
The start a simple touch
One night to push and scream
And then relief

Ten days of perfect tunes
The colours red and blue
We had a promise made
We were in love


To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
For me, no

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
    Cm                  Ab (barre 5)
And you, you knew the hands of the devil
     Cm                   Ab (barre 5)
And you, kept us awake with wolf teeth’s
Sharing different heartbeats
       Cm
In one night

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
For me, no

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
For me, no

Lack of accuracy. Tab incomplete. Helpful note on picking technique but the chords, notes and picking patterns are all wrong and the tab is missing large sections, including the bridge.
