                More Than This - Roxy Music
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Roxy Music
More Than This (1982)
(Bryan Ferry)

From: "Avalon"

Two versions: 
- one in F (the obvious choice for me)
- but then A-shapes make for a playable version, too (without any barree chords, 
  which might be an argument for beginners ...). These chords, however, need
  a capo on the 9th fret in order to sound in the original key (does not make
  much sense, I think).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
VERSION 1

capo: 1st fret (for original key)
play: F
key: F#
