Drop the capo down a fret and you have a perfect tab!
Great stuff!

Perfect, that's how you play when you cover it on solo guitar, it would have been nice to have some tabs for the : since you've gone......baby baby please, but that can be played with chords.

With a capo on the 2nd fret the relative chords in the middle 8 (Since you're gone....etc.) need to shift up atone to F & G. Great tab though - much easier on the fingers this way.....Cheers.
