song      : the crane wife 2
artist    : the decemberists
tabbed by : oneshotnothing


standard tuning


at the part i call "outro" it gets hard to hear what the guitar
is playing, so it could be what's written here, or some strumming
thing, but i guess you'll just have to figure that out yourself.
