Ben Howard - London tab

Tuning: CGCGGd
CAPO 3rd

I have to thank amazinglyclever for his help on this tab, he put a lot of work into 
completing the tab that i sent him, and this version is his final edit.. Make little 
adjustments to it for your own playing.. Amazing song, fun to play!

Foreword..

Tabbed from several different recorded live versions.
Because Ben plays his songs slightly differently each time, this tab will not be perfect
for all versions, in fact it is more an approximation of several performances but it
should be accurate enough to learn correctly. Please bear this in mind when learning.

For the chorus where 3 notes or more are above each other, this denotes a strum.
