Artist: Mumford And Sons
Song: I Gave You All
Album: Sigh No More (2009)

This is the tab for I Gave You All by Mumford And Sons. Sounds pretty right to me! Enjoy!

***NOTE: When I put an asterisk (*) next to a number, that means play the pattern one 
full time, then going to the second time on the pattern just pluck the two strings 
together and don't finish pattern, move on.

When I put an upward arrow thing (^) next to a number, that means just pluck those two 
strings indicated at the same time, and do not go into the pattern.

Open D Minor Tuning: DADFAD
No Capo

Picking Pattern:
|--------------|
|--------------|
|-x-----------x|
|--------x-----|
|--------------|
|-x---x-----x--|
Pick that pattern fast.

Main Riff:
|---|---|---|---|
|---|---|---|---|
|-5-|-4-|-2-|-0-|
|---|---|---|---| Play pattern 2 times at each interval. So like fingers with
|---|---|---|---| your fingers on five play the pattern twice at 5, then go
|-5-|-3-|-2-|-0-| down

Riff 1 (When I have the "x_" that's how many times you do the pattern each):
|---|---|----|----|---|---|---|---|
|---|---|----|----|---|---|---|---|
|-5-|-4-|-11-|-12-|-5-|-4-|-2-|-0-|
|---|---|----|----|---|---|---|---|
|---|---|----|----|---|---|---|---|
|-5-|-3-|-10-|-12-|-5-|-3-|-2-|-0-|
 x2  x1   x1   x2  x2  x2  x2  x2

Riff 2 (Reference NOTE section at top of tab for key):
|----|----|---|----|---|---|---|---|
|-12-|-10-|-8-|-10-|-3-|-5-|-7-|-3-|
|----|----|---|----|---|---|---|---|
|----|----|---|----|---|---|---|---|
|----|----|---|----|---|---|---|---|
|-12-|-10-|-8-|-10-|-3-|-5-|-7-|-3-|
 x2*  x1^  x2* x1^  x1^ x1^ x1^ x2

This is played exactly like the pattern except use the high F & A strings instead of the 
middle D & F strings.

Riff 3:
|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|
|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|
|-2-|-0-|-4-|-5-|-2-|-0-|-4-|-5-|
|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|
|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|
|-1-|-0-|-4-|-5-|-1-|-0-|-4-|-5-|
 x2* x1  x1  x2  x2  x2  x1  x4

Riff 4:
|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|
|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|
|-9-|-7-|-12-|-11-|-9-|-7-|-12-|-11-|-9-|-7-|-12-|-11-|-9-|-7-|-12-|-11-|-9-|
|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|
|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|---|----|----|---|
|-8-|-7-|-12-|-10-|-8-|-7-|-12-|-10-|-8-|-7-|-12-|-10-|-8-|-7-|-12-|-10-|-8-|
 x2* x1^  x2*  x2  x2* x1^  x1^  x3  x2* x1^  x1   x4  x2* x1^  x1   x1  x2*

|----|----|
|----|----|
|-12-|-11-|
|----|----|
|----|----|
|-12-|-10-|
  x1   x4

Riff 5 (Strumming Section, listen to song to time how many strums of each):
|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|----|---|---|---|----|----|
|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|----|---|---|---|----|----|
|-5-|-4-|-7-|-5-|-4-|-7-|-9-|-11-|-5-|-4-|-7-|-11-|-12-|
|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0--|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0--|-0--|
|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0--|-0-|-0-|-0-|-0--|-0--|
|-5-|-4-|-7-|-5-|-4-|-7-|-8-|-10-|-5-|-4-|-7-|-10-|-12-|

Chorus Riff (use pattern picking):
|---|---|---|
|---|---|---|
|-5-|-4-|-5-|
|---|---|---|
|---|---|---|
|-5-|-3-|-5-|
Listen to song for timing of picking.

Hey! First off, wicked tab. I've been looking for this for ages! I found a video that gives a good view of what Marcus does, and in that version he does this (might be different to normal..?):

|-5-|-4-|-7-|-11-|-12-| Riff for final verse

x2* x1^ x1* x2* x2

|----|----|---| |----|----|
|----|----|---| |----|----| "You've won..."
|-12-|-11-|-9-| x3 |-12-|-11-| (strumming, followed by
|----|----|---| |----|----| a few bars of
|----|----|---| |----|----| fingerpicked riff 4)
|-12-|-10-|-8-| |-12-|-10-|
x1 x1 x2 x1 x4

|---|---|---|---|
