                             TAKE THE NIGHT OFF - Laura Marling
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Quentin Ames 

Watch the Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53YBszFm-Rc


Tuning: CGCGGE

 

The strumming throughout this song is a consistent up and down strum with 
her thumb. Counted 1 e & a 2 e & a 3 e & a 4 e & a (technically speaking!) 
If you just relax and feel it out it might be easier than trying to count 
it. I guess it just depends on what kind of person you are.

She does not always hit the 6th string or the low E string She uses it as an 
accent. If you listen, you can figure out where she is using it or just 
apply it where you think it should go.

This is after the chorus and is the bridge into the next verse 
and the outro. Not sure if 1, 2, 3, 4 is how you would count this. 
Feels a little more like twelves but you get the idea. Besides if you 
just relax and let you your body feel it, you will not need to count it.
