BLESS THE TELEPHONE by Labi Siffre
Tabbed by Jon Mather

This is based on the version 2 Tab, although modified to be more easily played with a Capo.
Have also fixed a few things so now it's pretty much identical to the recording. 
The song is just a basic fingerpicking pattern on simple chords. Have included these as well for ease of 
playing. Enjoy!

Tuning of the original recording is a little sharp, so need to detune a little if you want to play along.

Tuning: Standard
