THINGS BEHIND THE SUN

From Nick Drake's brilliant last studio album 'Pink Moon'

STANDARD Tuning (eadgbe)

CAPO FOURTH FRET

It sounds like he is  strumming (without a plectrum) and picking some notes something
Nick Drake does incredible smoothly and well. 

However if you find it easier to just strum the chords then do so. Some parts of the
tabs there are hammer on and pull-off's noted but thats not exactly what hes doing
however its basically the same. 

Also its a lot easier to tab them as that. Those notes are the key to creating that
suspense and tension that this song does so well.

First chord is an Asus4 shape but the song sounds in the key of C# thanks to the capo.

Please rate/ Enjoy!

:)
