Hello. Can't believe I finally get the chance to write the "this is my first tab..."
speech after reading it so many times. So, well... I'm sorry I don't know the real names to
those chords. It's probably a bit off but since there isn't a tab yet for that song I
guess that will do until you post a better version ;) This was based on the acoustic
version of Travis's song "Mother" which is on ther latest record "Where You Stand". It's
amazing so if you haven't bought it yet you should definitely do so.

Standard tuning - no capo.
