                         LATCH (ACOUSTIC) - Sam Smith
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:ndermawan
E-mail:ndermawan@yahoo.com
Tuning: Standard
Capo 1

Came back to this tune whilst trying to figure out another song,
and disappointed by the lack of quality chords to go along with it; 
even if there are 10 versions.

IMO only Version 5 of the chords gets it kinda right with regards to the acoustic version.
Everything else just doesn't capture the nuance of the acoustic version when played.
Hope mine does it justice regarding the excellent acoustic version of this song.

Reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUK6HlzNWEg

EDIT: WHOOPS. So it turns out the "10+ versions" I mentioned above were for Disclosure's
      original version. I derped hard. So sorry if I wrongly called them sub-par. 
      Apologies and please rate!

[Chords Used]
  Bm/G Bm/F# Bm/E Bm/C Bm  |  G  G/F#  G/E  G/C  G/B
e|--2----2----2----2----2--|--3----3----3----3----3--| As you may have noticed,
B|--3----3----3----3----3--|--3----3----3----3----3--| it is basically just Bm and G
G|--4----4----4----4----4--|--4----4----4----4----4--| (being the high piano part)
D|-(5)--(5)--(5)--(5)--(5)-|-------------------------| along a moving bass of 
A|-----------------3----2--|-----------------3----2--| G, F#, E, C & Bm
E|--3----2----0------------|--3----2----0------------| (which is the cello)

the 5 fret on D string is in brackets as it is optional. 
It is an octave higher than the low G, and to play it you'd need to use your pinky, 
which is why I listed it as optional.

Listen to the piano in the video for strumming rhythm if my tab lacks clarity.

Basically these two sections repeat throughout the whole song. 
Use F# bass at your own liking - listen to cello part for bass progression timing
