Song: See my friends
Artist: The Kinks
Composer: Ray Davies

Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' at ultimateGuitar.com)
15th Jan 2013

The song was inspired by a trip to India, 
and also the death of Ray Davies' sister.

TUNING:
D#-G#-C#-F#-A#-D# 
I think on the original single version the guitars are tuned a
half-step down from standard tuning  (or maybe it was in concert pitch,
but the backing tracks were slowed down before the vocals were added)

I'm sure this is not the way the Kinks played it, but I think
it works well when you only have one guitar to accompany yourself.

To try and emulate the Indian feel of the droning strings,
slide the shape for the D6sus2/E up two frets for the E7sus2 chords.

The names sound very complicated, but a lot of the shapes I've
selected are relatively similar and simple moveable chords.

N.B.
Please IGNORE ANY POP-UP CHORD BOXES the website might automatically
suggest and use the typed shapes shown below:

The chords are named as if still in standard tuning:
E        = 022100    E7sus4    = 077700    Bmadd11 = x24430
Esus4    = 022200    E7sus2/F# = x99700    E7      = 022130
D6sus2/E = 057700    E6sus2/4  = x44200    Aadd2   = 577600
E7sus2   = 079900    Badd4     = 799800
