Elliott Smith

New Moon

This is how I play Placeholder. It sounds pretty good. The only thing I'm
not sure of is if the A right before the chorus is major or minor. other
than that i'd say it's almost 100%.
Just another note, you should probably sit down with your iPod or CD player
or whatever you have and listen to the song, just to hear how he strums the
chords. Strumming isn't an easy thing to write down.

Standard D tuning (slightly higher than standard though)

***FINGERPICKED***

x       Mute
/	Slide
h	Hammer-on
{	Start using thumb on the low D string
} 	Stop using thumb on the low D string
^	Strum Downwards
v	Strum Upwards
( )	Optional/Ghost note
