Song: Swan Dive (Acoustic)
Band: Sister Hazel
From: "Before The Amplifiers" - Originally From "Chasing Daylight"
By: Ben Mc 

Tuning: Standard
Capo: 4th Fret

The song is in the key of C# which makes the open chords look abit nasty
(lost of sharp's) so I've Capo'd at the 4th fret to simplify the chords and
to get the correct voicing. I havent tabbed the solo's - just do your own
thing in C# major - shoot me an email if you need help with positions/root
notes to aim for.

Chords (Relative to Capo):

  Asus   Asus/G#   F#m9     F#m     Dsus      E      G#m     Asus/C#
e|-0-------0--------0--------2--------0-------0-------X--------0---------|  
B|-0-------0--------0--------2--------3-------0-------X--------0---------|
G|-2-------2--------2--------2--------2-------1-------4--------2---------|
D|-2-------2--------2--------4--------0-------2-------6--------2---------|
A|-0-------0--------0--------4--------0-------2-------6--------4---------|
