Midsummer Day: Written by The Tea Party, 
Album: Slpendor Solis/The Tea Party. 
Tabbed and submitted to 'http://www.ultimate-guitar.com' by Blake Eveleigh.

NOTE: If you are playing this song off The Tea Party's first album, called 'The Tea Party',
then the whole song is played on a 12-string acoustic. 
If you are playing this song off Splendor Solis, the first verse
is a 6-string acoustic playing close to the bridge, and a 12-string for the rest...                      
                              
This tab is written in open C tuning... 
C G C G C D, cause it's way easier on your guitar... especially if u have a 12-string.

Fantastic, this would have to be the most accurate I have come across, thanks.

I have two problems with this tab:

1. If you're going to play this song in open C, you need a capo on the second fret.

2. To left of the tab lines, the tuning is written in the wrong direction. The bottom line should be C, and the top line should be D.

Other than these two problems, the tab is great. Sounds perfect once you get a capo on there!

Tab is spot on, but tuning is incorrect. Correct tuning from 6th string up to 1st string is D,A,D,A,D,E.
