                             You Are Gold - The National Parks
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: SirRotenous
Tuning: Gadgbe
Capo 1

This song is easy to play, but hard to get right. Listen to the song to get the timing
and rhythm of the words and picking. The key for it to sound good during the chorus is 
to move the bass note first and keep the other two figners down for half a beat before 
moving them to let the notes ring out a little bit more, and not sound muted. It is also
possible to play without tuning the low E string up to a G, but I find this makes it much
easier. Good luck and happy picking!

(Here transition into strumming chords, start on C)

strum between C and G as many times as you want before starting on the lyrics
(it's an instrumental part in the recorded song)

C       G
You are gold
        C     G
You are all I see
        C      G          D         Em
You are aurum scarce and meant for kings
    C      G
And I will wait
        C        G
If it's time you need
       C      G              D       Em  
What I see in you I hope you find in me
    C       G
Cus you are gold
C       G
Go-oohh-olld
C       G
You are gold
C      G      D
G-oohh-old

So it's not clear from the tab, but the tuning should be GADGBe. Just in case anyone else skips the paragraph at the beginning like I did
