About this tab version
First off, there was not full tab for this song on Ultimate Guitar and since this is a famous song, looking up some tabs online and suddenly discovered Mark's tab and the temptation to publish this is irresistible. He shouldn't mind posting his work here because he released his tab in a PDF format in his description for his video, so posting it here wouldn't be an issue. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Porter Robinson & Madeon - Shelter

I did not write this tab, I stumbled across this tab on YouTube by Mark Magdamo. I saw that this tab wasn't
published on ultimate guitar so I decided to post Mark's tab here, he did release the tab on a PDF too. Great
finger picking song to learn.

Here is his video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTkT0dasWSM

I love it!. I also tried writing the tabs for this song for few days, but he beat me to it and much better and advanced than the simple tabs I wrote. Thanks for sharing!
