                            Warm Foothills - Alt-j
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Mungwati

Tuning:Standard

EDIT: 
> This is a tab in standard tuning, so a bit easier than having to go to drop-d.
> Had a fiddle around with an easier picking pattern, doesn't require the palm mutes. 


Really love this song and saw that there wasn't a tab floating about so thought I'd give it a go. 
My first time at writing a tab, so any help/comments would be greatly appreciated. 

This tab is mainly based upon this acoustic version:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nj22HvDRFiM , 
but i threw in the intro from the album version for good measure.

If you have a fiddle around you can adapt this tab to the album version.

Intro [DROP D] (Album version)
D|---------------------------|---------0--|
B|---------------------------|---------7--|
F|---------------------------|---------9--|
D|----5--4-------------------|---------0--|
A|-2----------------5-4-2----|--2/4----0--|
D|---------0---4-------------|---------0--|
  Play this part 4 times.   Then this once.



Intro [Back to the acoustic version now] (0:00 - 0:14)

  Youuuur            Foot-            -hills           your              warmth



Rest of the song follows the same pattern, so give the youtube video a
 listen and play along with it and you 
should crack it in no time.

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. This is very wrong, for starters the tuning isn't even right, its in double drop D like most Alt J songs. Just submitted a correct version of this tab
