Nick Mulvey - Cucurucu
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Twheel

Tuning: EADGBE
Capo: 3 or 4 depending on how old the youtube video is. Capo 2 for the studio (EP) version.

So there isn't much structure to the tab in terms of timing. Sorry about that, but this
was quite a quick (and rushed) tab. To figure out timings please check out the youtube
videos below. Any corrections please add to the comments. The version tabbed here is the 
EP edition (however, this doesn't have a video of Nick playing, so may be difficult to
pick up the strumming pattern.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUyifq_X1J4    (EP edition, newest. Capo 2)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfUjOfUyuak   (Livemusic Sessions, old. Capo 3)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-bRR3MdiaE   (Old version. Capo 4)

This is great. I love the song, and you got a very accurate tab! While playing i noticed this chord at the first verse:e|--2----------B|--0----------G|--2----------D|--1----------A|--2----------E|--X----------sounds better when you play it like thise|--2----------B|--0----------G|--2----------D|--0----------A|--2----------E|--X----------And at the chorus I like to play the second chord like this:e|--0----------B|--1----------G|--2----------D|--4----------A|--0----------E|--X----------But thats not likely to be better, only easier.
