Capo
1st fret
This is a tab for the fantastic, simple and beautiful song Bottom of The Sea by Matt 
Nathanson of his album Modern Love.

I've only tabbed out the different parts of the song, but its deffinatly not hard to 
figure out how many times you play each part, just listen to the song. :) I figured it out 
by watching him play live in this video:
