**This is close, though not exact and not the way Robin Pecknold plays it.
And naturally there's the inconvenience of playing the whole song with a
cappo minus one part.  I WILL spend more time transcribing this part as
played with a cappo and update the tab soon, but I just wanted to have a
playable, musically correct tab albeit the obvious inconvenience for people
who want to know how to play the song in the meantime and ASAP I will
devote some time to learning Pecknold's actual method and voicings.**




OUTRO: 2:14 - 3:13

F major played all throughout with dynamic melodies thrown in which I will
update and tab out in full ASAP.
