Artist: Tallest Man On Earth
Song: King of Spain

Credit goes to 'cougerman8' on YouTube, he's done an excellent tutorial for it here
but I thought i'd tab it here for people to use as a reference.

Everything in this is all open strummed really, so the indicated shifts go between all
open strumming as I haven't bothered to put in all the 0's, but it's all pretty easy to
out. The strumming is quite fast and you've got to keep a really loose hand, rolling it 
on 3-4 strings at once.

Sorry if the tab's a bit of a mess! It's my first effort so there are bound to be a few
here and there, so just keep listening to the song & watching the youtube video to get
right.

Tuning: CGCGCE
Capo: 8th Fret

You search for bottles and for knives.

Perhaps I'll reach the other side.

Verse 6: ..Illusion... Just cause I stole some eagle's wings, Because you named me as
your lover, Well, I thought I could be anything.
