Capo
1st fret
Artist: P.J.Harvey
Song: Sheela-Na-Gig
Album: Dry

Capo on 1st fret, all chords relative to the capo. Therefore the tuning is actually
and so an E chord is in

reality an F chord, an F# chord is a G chord and so on. But I have transcribed it as if 
is the beginning of the

fretboard so just ignore the 1st fret and play the tab like you normally would.

Great tab. Not sold on the B5, but I can't think of anything that sounds better. Maybe it's because of the missing bass that it sound weird.
