                COME A LITTLE CLOSER - Cage the Elephant
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: BittersweetDays
Any Questions Please Ask!

Tuning: Standard

This is version of the song 'Come a Little Closer' song by Cage the Elephant!
It is acoustic and it sounds right to me! For the actual video check out
this video here - https://vimeo.com/79830648 and let's do 
this!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I believe (don't quote me on this) that this song is in the key of C#m so the
chords are as follows...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT - these are just chords, and the chord progression. In the actual song,
Lincoln Parish noodles around on the chords, it's a little complicated to 
read (it was complicated to type) but he holds the chord position, and plays
it like so. If I write it with numbers from 1234 he would be doing 1324.
(That was really difficult to explain with text)

               C#m                      G#m

That's it! Work out your own strumming pattern or use the one I provided for
the verse and the intro here it is - |-d-du-udu-udu-udu-| It's that per
chord! Just listen to the song to figure out your own pattern or hear mine!
