Ben Howard - Diamonds tab

Much trickier than first appears, but once you get the picking pattern it all falls in
to place. As with all of Ben's songs it's fun to play and is in an awkward tuning.
Because of the strange capo positioning all notes are NOT relative to the capo 
positioning, but to nut, i.e. 0th fret. Hope that makes sense and enjoy!

P.s. All thanks to Tom Wheeler who sent me off with the basics to refine!
