Here's the great song "Star Mile" from the album We Were Here. It's not particularly 
but it's fun to play.

I haven't tabbed the picking but if you listen to the record you'll figure it out 
Also, everytime he changes from G major to E minor has a little bass-walk, usally E-3-2-0. 
listen to the record to get it right. Don't forget to put Capo on the 2nd fret.

(Capo 2nd)
D    xx0232
G    320033
C    x32010
Em   022000
G/F# 2x0033

[Intro]
D G D G D C G D

[Verse]
D   G           D            G           D            G
Oh doubt in the girl by your side, she’s feeding your pride
       D         C                 G     D
As you go for a ride down the star mile

[Verse]
D      G            D             G     D      G
Worlds arise as she lets you come in, a duo begins
        D         C          G      D
To the Hollywood din of the lonely

[Chorus]
G               Em    C           D    G           G/F# Em
    And all the gold dust in her eyes won’t reform into rain
C               D   G    G/F# Em       C                    D
    You had and lost the one thing you kept in a safe place
                 G                 G/F#         Em
Remember the face, of the girl who made you her own
C       D                        G
            And how you left her alone

[Verse]
D     G           D           G         D             G
All’s well at the base of the hill, you might need to fill
        D         C            G         D
a prescription to kill off the silence.

[Verse]
D    G              D        G        D           G
Look down from your tower on high and take in the night
         D            C    G             D
Look her right in the eye, she’ll listen

[Chorus]
G               Em    C           D    G           G/F# Em
    And all the gold dust in her eyes won’t reform into rain
C               D   G    G/F# Em       C                    D
    You had and lost the one thing you kept in a safe place
                 G                 G/F#         Em
Remember the face, of the girl who made you her own
C       D                        G
            And how you left her alone

[Bridge]
Em              D              C
  Life comes to those that are true
Em       D     C   Em        D          C             G
  The regular news,   over playing the blues with the light on
Em                    C            D       G        G/F#     Em
  And if you burn the road that’ll lead you   back to her in time
C                        D     G        G/F#     Em
  I'll watch you turn to stone,   can’t find the sublime
C              D  G  G/F#    Em  C                D
  She’s moving on,   without you. The tide breaks, you watch the stars fade
G      G/F#       Em                 C                        D        G
  They gather you back to their home, I guess it’s better than  being alone

when i tab i use the original key AND arrangement/voicings as on the recording. if i then would tab it without capo it
would not be the same voicings. so even though a D without capo and a C with capo are the same chord, they do not sound
the same and it may alter picking. so, no, you shouldn't do what you are suggesting. thank you

Can someone please tab the picking to this one! It's an incredible song and I really suck at taking out tabs. If someone
has the time to do this I'd appreciate it a lot.

Great job on this tab btw!
