                When Love Breaks Down – Prefab Sprout
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Prefab Sprout
When Love Breaks Down (1985)
(Paddy McAloon)

From: "Steve McQueen"

A very beautiful song and a great recording, too. But instruments and 
harmonies create dense layers of chord textures that are very difficult to
recreate on one guitar. So a lot of what is here is my interpretation of 
what is played. Take the basic chords and try to create your own 
arrangement. Enjoy!
