"Shallow Grave"
set tempo
4th fret
This isnt the bango version played on the album, but the live version he
 plays on guitar, so youtube it if you havent heard it.

Im not going to write out the picking pattern, becuase its long and
 tedious, but its similar to others he does with some variations. Again,
 there are some great videos on youtube so you can see how he picks it.

Capo on the 4th fret or so.

D ---0----0----0---0----------------------------------|
A ---4b---0----0---0----------------------------------|
D ---0----2----2---0----------------------------------|
A ---0----4----3---2----------------------------------|
D ---0----x----x---x----------------------------------|

These four chords are repeated through the verses, and are
the bulk of the song. The ( 4b ) is a C# thats is bent slightly - youl
get it once you hear it.

The chorus then goes:

    Ooo when I dive into the waterrr . . . .
D ---0-------------0----------0---------|
A ---0-------------0----------4b--------|
D ---0-------------2----------0---------|
A ---0-------------0----------0---------|
D ---5-------------0----------0---------|

  Ive raised the bottom to be saved, its just a shallow grave
D ---0------------------------0-------------------------------|
A ---0------------------------0-------------------------------|
D ---0------------------------2-------------------------------|(intro chords)
A ---0------------------------0-------------------------------|
D ---5------------------------0-------------------------------|

Thats it, good luck!

Great tab, not sure why this has just two stars! Probably because people don't want to try and figure out the pattern on their own. Chords are spot on, thanks man! (For those looking for help on the pattern, its played like Little Brother, or Sparrow and the Medicine, and several of his other tunes)

Agree with Lima.31, spot on! Been looking for a tab to play his live version. The fingerpicking is not too hard, except for the 3rd chord.. Have played the video at half speed now for about 40 minutes and I just can't get it right. Anybody who can help me out?

I want to post or [tab]
