I BELONG TO YOU - LAUREN O'CONNELL & Ryan Lerman
Standard Tuning
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDK9idTB5xs Lauren's original Youtube version

Tabbed June 2012 tom@tomnichols.com

I returned to this tab in 2017 and carefully mapped out the first few verses and chorus - it's painstaking
because the number of individual fingerpicked notes is significant, and I ran out of steam after a few hours
-  I left bar version numbers in order to represent the song and you'll have to make do for the moment...

Ryan does not use full alternate thumb picking on the baseline, but it holds
together better with solo in my opinion as it reproduces the rhythm of the
percussion to an extent.

INTRO
Hold down a C shape and percuss the strings with the side of your finger

VERSE3

If the
ground should start to break well I think I would allocate more of my
Bones           to keep our legs up and the
tiny ones inside our hands would plant themselves in door frames and each other or
at           least I hope with each
other, or at least I hope they would

VERSE4 (single chord strokes)
