Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I'm a huge fan of The National, but their songs are not easy to play or to cover 
(most of them at least), neither to figure out actually :). The other chords 
available here are based on a live show from the National and so are accurate to 
the way the band plays the song, but they aren't really that much fun to play on 
an acoustic guitar. I just tabbed my own version in about
10 minutes with pretty much only simple chords. The key sounds right, and I do 
improvise a couple C variations when I play it that go nicely along with the song 
so no, it is not accurate to the original way of playing it! Just play or fiddle 
around with it and tell me what you think. Enjoy!

PS: the tab may miss a chord or two so if you feel like something is missing, it probably is :)

Capo: 2nd or 3rd fret (for me, adapt depending on your voice)
Tuning: standard

Chords used:
G:   320033 or 320003
C:   032010
C2:  030010 (don't know the name of this chord)
C/E: 020010

The song with the chords:

         G                          C
