Mac DeMarco - Dreaming
                              from his 2012 album '2'

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS FOR THE STUDIO VERSION - NOT THE SOLO ACOUSTIC VERSION. THERE ARE
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO, SO DON'T GET THEM CONFUSED.

This is was actually recorded a quarter step down, but it's quite hard to tune down a
quarter step because it's halfway between two different notes, so I've just tabbed it
out in standard. It will sound good playing on your own (in fact you pretty much won't
be able to tell any difference at all), but you probably won't be able to play along
with the recording accuarately unless you tune down a quarter step.

Guitar 1 is the guitar in the left speaker
Guitar 2 is the guitar in the right speaker

That's because it's a quarter step down, so you're playing it out of tune. All of it is accurate. I even made a Guitar Pro tab to prove it.

I'm pretty sure the open D version is for playing it solo acoustic, but all the notes are the same in this tab, so that's irrelevant.

Lack of accuracy.
