     THE DRESS LOOKS NICE ON YOU - Sufjan Stevens
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Adam B.

Tuning: Standard, Capo 8th

This is my first tab, so here goes... This is a more in depth tab that I based off
drewbix's.  It's quite a bit more accurate, and I'm almost positive everything is
right.

Intro / Verses 1, 2, & 4 / Outro:
e|----------------------------(0)-------(0)--------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------3----------3--------------------|
G|---------0------------0---------0----------0--------0--------------|
D|-----2-------0--0h2------2-----------------------------------------|
A|--0--------------------------3---------2---------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------3-----------------|

(Play parentheses indicated notes in BREAK & OUTRO sections only)

Verse 3 (when banjo enters):
e|--------------------------------0---------0------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------3---------3-----3---------------|
G|-------------0------------------------0---------0-----0------------|
D|--------0h2------0--0h2--2p0---------------------------------------|
A|--0h2---------------------------3---------2------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------3---------------|

This part's real tricky if you want to play it by yourself.  There are
two guitars on Seven Swans. It is possible to play them together, so I
put them both on the same staff, but the individual guitars are marked
to the right.  Guitar 1 plays all eighth notes, and guitar 2 plays the
melody.
Instrumental Break (with keyboard):
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----3---3---3---3---2---2---2---2---3---3---3---3---2---2---2---2--|Gtr 1
G|--0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0----|Gtr 1 
D|--0-----0-3---2-0---------2---0---0-----0-3---2-0---------2---0----|Gtr 2
A|------------------4-----4-------4-----------------4-----4-------4--|Gtr 2
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

Not quite. I think a few notes are off, but it's close.

I think that some of the timing is a bit off, but in any case, there is definitely enough correct information here to teach someone the rudiments of the song. Good job :)
