Artist: Two Gallants
Song: The Deader
Album: Two Gallants


Like most 2G's songs, this one is finger-picked and a bit tricky for the novice.

There are two guitars on this track, acoustic and electric, playing similar things.  
in this song he only plays C G and F (and variations thereof) and picks the melody line on 
higher strings.

The chords are indicated for fretting, but the chords are rarely strummed. Instead they 
finger-picked. So listen to the track to get a feel.

Note: The | indicate the beginning of a measure.

I don't think that its very easy to fret the 1st fret on the low E string while freting the 5th on the high E, so I think playing the 3rd fret on the D string works well.
