Artist: School Of Seven Bells 
Album: Alpinisms (Ghostly International 2008)
Song: Chain
Tabbed by witmachine@yahoo.com

I don't know why i haven't been able to tab it, but i finally 
figured it out. Initially i would play the piece in standard tuning,
but i found it easier and much more enjoyable to adjust the G string
up a half step to G# and with a capo on the fourth fret.  

Ben sometimes plays with a capo so i figured this song with a capo
would work...


EADG#Be         Capo on 4th fret
