Capo
2nd fret
Laura Marling
Sophia
Tuning: DGDGBD
Capo 2nd

There's basically just a few sections which are repeated.

All the hammer ons are on then of so eg. 0 2h 0

The song is all plucked up until the first chorus.

NB. The lyrics don't match up with the timing, make sure you listen to the song to get
it right, though its very regular.

Verse 1 Strummed again

The next bit is basically just Open with hammer ons on 1st fret B string and 2nd fret on 
the Low D


Then its just the sections above thrown in and strummed till the end of the song. Hope 
that makes sense.

tabs pretty good,thanks. just learning this song now, one thing thats a little off in the tab is that for a lot of it the 5th thickest (g with the new tuning) string is hit a lot more. like on the the verses if u play it according to this tab it doesn't sound full enuf thats because the g note on the 5th string ive just mentioned is hit most of the time with the rest of the tab.dont have me guitar here but i think its hit in conjunction with the two lower strings and the 3rd then hit. ie, 1,2 and 5 with 3 and 4 on the off beat. Im not entirely sure, but in the verses definetely a few deeper notes so experiment and see. Great tab tho been wanting to play this for ages, thanks a mil to the poster.

also on the tab here, at the 'shy and tired i am today' part it has two open picks of the 0's if u look above followed by two on 1 0 2, from what i can best make out from the video, its open and one quick hammer on and off to 1 0 2 when strummed sometimes two quick hammer on and offs to those and probably with open base notes when plucked (ie 5th string at least) but dont do two strums or picks of 1 0 2 as above as it doesnt sound right.again experiment, class tune! once again thanks for the tab

just been watching that,man she is awesome. anyway its two super quick hammer on and offs at point i mentioned above and stick a lot more of fifth string in there.Also u gotta move quickly between frets on this song,for beginners out there, for this song dont slide, try and lift off, move and put down really quickly. i was sliding this for a while and it didnt sound right, after watching vid i can see why.not been playing too long myself, super love this song, hope i helped add to this awesome tab.
