Song:  "Carmella"
Artist: Beth Orton
Album:  Daybreaker

Words and music written by Beth Orton
Acoustic guitar is listed as Beth Orton and Ryan Adams (also slide guitar).
Published by EMI Music Publishing Ltd.

This is a really fun song to play.  This basically is the entire foundation of the song.  It's easier than 
initially sounds because it's all 8th notes - plucking on and off the beat.  The important thing to 
to get  the right feel is to emphasize the notes on the G string (except for the first time plucking through the D-chord - the G and B strings - notes A and D - are pretty quiet).  There is another acoustic 6 string 
accompanies this finger picking and an electric slide that accompanies the chorus.  If I never get around to transcribing those, please add to it.


Timing is 4/4
Standard tuning
Sounds like a steel bodied 6 string acoustic or a hollow bodied electric - finger picking.

I am using each dash (-) in the "staff" as a 16th note (4 dashes per beat).  If you tap your finger to the 
each down stroke of your finger would be a pluck and each time your finger hit the top would be a pluck 
of course for the hammer-ons in the first four bars and the pull-offs in the second four which are 16th notes and fit inbetween).  That's what the
 _
| | is supposed to help denote.  The first | is the pluck on the beat (finger hitting table when tapping 
beat) and the second | is the pluck on the off beat (finger hitting top).

... keep playing whatever variations you feel like of these bars throughout the whole song, or strum the 
while accentuating the notes on the G string to keep the right feel.
