Tabbed by: Jeff. K

Capo on 5th Fret

Tuning: Standard

I tried playing Christopher's version too, and also found that it didn't sound too much
the song. I went ahead and tried to figure out as much as I could using a capo on the
fret as in the video...but I'm sure there is a much more accurate tab than this. Whoever 
how to play this, can you please post it.

Hey, thanks Jeff for posting that, I hope you don't mind that I cut and paste your lyrics under my version of the tab for this song. It's pretty similar, but is "filled out" a bit. It's not 100% accurate to Stabilo's version, but wihout anything funky (i.e. retuning the guitar or splitting into 2 parts) it's the best I've come up with.

Hope everyone enjoys and please add to this if you can get closer (the most luck I've had was tuning the G string up 2, and B string up 3, making sort of an open D tuning)

Oh, and play around with the chords too - for example I tabbed a D in the chorus but it sounds nice going up to a Dsus4 or down to a Dadd9 to add some character / harmonize better.

in the intro/ verse i think it sounds closer with
|--- ---
|-x- -x-
|-2- instead of -0-
|-0- -0-
|-3- -3-
|-x- -x-
