"Fireflies" by Owl City.
Capo on the 3rd fret.

The best chords to this song are, of course, the highest rated one, and I noticed that
there weren't very many intro tabs including a capo on the 3rd fret to go with them. This way,
you can play the intro and then the correct chords.

Note: The letters above the tab indicate what chord to play when. It's just in 
case you might want to do a rhythm guitar/lead guitar
thing with someone.

I'm pretty sure this is right, but this is my first tab so I hope it's easy to follow.
Anyway, have fun! :D

This is the part that plays over the part above (which you probably already 
knew :P).

You could also do it this way, which sounds lower but it's more flow-y and easier 
to play (good for acoustic)

There! Done.

If you wanted, you could even have one person play the first part while another plays
the second over it, and then one does rhythm for the rest of the song while the other does
the first part repetitively in the verses. That's a bit more advanced, though. If you're 
just playing on your own, you can just play this thing through.

Cool. I hope you like it!
