This is the acoustic version of the wonderful 'Rest' by Michael Kiwanuka, the way it was 
played in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ew2DaeI9ZnI

The studio version is half a note lower, so if you want to play it that way you can 
either transpose the chords a half step down or tune your guitar in Eb.
