TWO DOVES - Dirty Projectors - from BITTE ORCA

This is a fairly simple song that requires basic fingerpicking
technique, i.e. thumb and forefinger, however independence of
each finger on the right hand makes it more fluid.

I've nearly written out the entire song note-for-note, though
it's really the same material repeated with slight variations.

When in doubt, refer back to the recording!

Standard tuning
Capo on 6th fret

could you possibly post the chords somewhere?

I can't get the rhythm down worth my life, I can fingerpick it but it doesn't sound quite right, any tips?

Notice how there are 7 notes in the first measure? The first note of the beginning (C chord) is weighted longer than the rest of the notes in the measure. So if you divide the measure into 8th notes it'll be like :
3rd fret (on A) = 2 beats
2nd fret (on D) = 1 beat
0pen (on G) = 1 beat
3rd fret (on E) = 1 beat
1st fret (on B) = 1 beat
2nd fret (on D) = 1 beat
0pen (on G) = 1 beat

This is not at all how you SHOULD count this song, since it's most likely 2/4, but I broke it down to the shortest beat count so you could see how the 7 notes add up to 8 beats.

Whenever you look at tabs always listen to the song, and see if the song is in 4/4 time, or X/4 time. This song sounds like 2/4 time to me. Then count how many actual notes you need to play in the measure. If there are 8 of them evenly spaced out, then each one is an 8th note. A very weird way of approaching how to learn music, but these ARE tabs, and not sheet music with clear rhythmic marking.

Attention: the only tricky part of this tab is the:

|-----------0-------|
|---------------3-1-|
|---5---------5-----|
|-------3-----------|
|-----5-------------|
|-5-------5---------|

It's tricky because if you listen to the song he does not do 100% what's in the tab. He's doing a slight ritard at the end there. It's not:

|---------------(8th)-------------|
|-------------------(16th)-(16th)-|
|---(8th)---------(8th)-----------|
|-------(8th)---------------------|
|-----(8th)-----------------------|
|-(8th)------(8th)----------------|

It's more like:

|---------------(8th and a bit)------------------|
|----------------------------------(16th)-(16th)-|
|---(8th)--------------(8th and a bit)-----------|
|-------(8th)------------------------------------|
|-----(8th)--------------------------------------|
|-(8th)------(8th)-------------------------------|

Also, why did I write an essay? Because I love this song and tab. Thanks Kris!
