            Adolescence - Prefab Sprout
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Prefab Sprout 
Adolescence (2013)
(McAloon)

From: "Crimson/Red" [2013]

The chords on the recording are played using a sound called “Fat Fifth”,
which adds the fifth to every note played, thus creating densely layered 
chords which are difficult to reproduce on a guitar. I think what I’ve got
here is pretty close, but it is just a suggestion, of course.
