Alex Day - Holding On tab

I love this song so much.  I spent last night with my capo and newly fixed guitar and 
tabbed it.  It's great if you have a nice clean electric tone to your guitar.  This may 
be right but its my first tab so enjoy!!!!! 8D

Capo on fourrrrrrr

(Tabbed ignoring from the capo.  So although 5 is one fret away from the capo it's still 
to be tabbed as 5)

Intro:

--------------------0-----------------------------|
------------0h2---0-1-----------------------------|
----------------0---0-----------------------------|
-----0h2------------------------------------------|   x2
--3------3----------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------|

Mainly hammer ons but once you've got it down it sounds lovely

If you read tabs ignoring the capo (meaning 5 is always 5 but 0 is still open so its 0)
then I has it here:

--------------------0-----------------------------|
-----------0h5---0--5-----------------------------|
---------------0----0-----------------------------|
----0h6-------------------------------------------|    x2
--7----7------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------|


from now on it's basically chords.  I think Alex does a thing where he plays the lowest 
of the chord on the down beats and than the whole chord on the off beat.  It also helps 
watch Alex play cause he does it quite wonderfully

So...

1  +  2  + 3   +  4  +

Anyway it's chord time!

Verse 1


C                                                                                        
              Ab
A million and one thousand things are screaming in my head
                                           Eb
And I can't seem to forget
                                                   C
Can't stop thinking about you
                                                                                         Ab
I could ride across the sky in a bicycle built for two
                                                    Eb
Could you teach me how to ride

Like you taught me how to feel alive

Chrous (just regular strumming here)


F          C                Eb                                    Ab
Not a single day goes by when I don't wish for you to
F                                  C                           Eb
watch me pause to find the words to steal your heart away
F                            C                                  Eb               Ab
But I play every word back round and round to try and find
F                                       C                         Eb
a clue you might have left behind to say you feel the same

  ( I like to play it this way I'm not positive about the Ab but the Eb F is very 
and fun to play 8D)
C      Eb       Ab   Eb  F
Even if I know
C                Eb       Ab   Eb  F
I'll never be your Leo
C                 Eb
I'll keep holding on

Intro
