                             FOLLOW THE SUN - Xavier Rudd
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Totoro


I have been trying different tabs and watching two different lives videos of the song and I believe this 
is right. I have also put a different version of the song at the end of the tab. 
The difference is not bigbut I've seen Xavier Rudd play that way in a live concert. Enjoy !

(Part of it comes from araçaboi's tab)

Tuning: DADGBD

Capo 5

Skip every second note on the 6th (low D) string and it's perfectly correct to how Xavier is playing it, I think

If you skip every second note on the low D (6th string) I think you've got it just right
