City And Colour - What Makes A Man tab

Song: What Makes a Man
Band: City and Colour
Tuning: Standard - Capo on the 1st fret
Email: tigiri2001@hotmail.com

Based on a live performance I saw on MuchMusic, this isn't how Dallas plays the
song live. This is what sounds good when playing along to my CD, though. Obviously
there's a lot of improvisation when playing this song, but this is the gist of it
- and this sounds pretty close to the CD version. The brackets illustrate finger
placement.

The song continues like that through the second verse up until the part of the
song with the background vocals. That part of the song goes back and forth between
the C and D twice without the Em, before playing the Em like the verses. It goes
likes this: (I hope the lyrics don't make it look to sloppy. Hopefully it helps
you follow along with the song.)
