Girlyman – The Shape I Found You In

Official website: www.girlyman.com

Ty Greenstein of Girlyman writes love songs with a depth of longing that we mere mortals 
only marvel at.  Here is my puny interpretation of one of her best.

Tuning: EADGAC#
Capo 1

Tune you guitar like this from standard tuning:
1. Lower your B [5th] string one whole step to A (2nd fret on the G string)
2. Lower your high E [6th] string 1-1/2 steps to C# (4th fret on your newly tuned A 
string)
3. Apply your capo to fret 1

Please tune carefully or it will sound like ass.  I play the low G note with my thumb 
the G chord as a bar.

There are several simple picking patterns that repeat:

E   ______________________2_________2_______
A   __0_________0___________________________
D   ________________________________________
G   ____2___2_____2___2_____2___2_____2___2_
A   ______0_________0_________0_________0___
C# ________________________________________

D   __0_________0_________0_________0_______
G   ____2___2_____2___2_____2___2_____2___2_

Example:

A                G
You were delivered to me
                A                      D               D1 - D2 - D3
We were closed as the stores on Christmas Eve
        A                         E1
So I felt around in the dark
              G                     D1
Building rope ladders into your heart
                D1             E2               G
Climbing hand over hand to get in
                  D1          E2          A
That's the shape I found you in
                  D1          E2           A
That's the shape I found you in
