Song: April come she will
Artist: Simon & Garfunkel
Composer: Paul Simon
Album: Sounds of silence

Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' at ultimateGuitar.com)
28th Oct 2016

The original album track is quite sharp of concert pitch,
using a chromatic tuner, tune all strings up approx.(+30)

CAPO: 1st fret (Sounds in the key of Ab)

Here's a link to 1981 New York concert video:
This live version is in concert pitch, but performed
a tone higher (Capo at 3rd fret - Sounds in Bb)

Play the G chord with the ring, middle and little fingers
and for the changes to C/G use the index and middle finger
to hammer-on the notes on the 2nd and 4th strings leaving
the ring and little fingers where they are.

might automatically suggest and use the typed shapes
shown below:
