The Maccabees - Dinosaurs chords

Dinosaurs - The Maccabees

From the brilliant album, Wall Of Arms.
There was no chords or tabs online so worked it out.
Its Fairly straight-forward to play, just listen for chord changes.
This is my first tab but the chords sound good,
I will try to post the lead parts whenever I can get around to it..... Enjoy.

Please rate and feedback would be good.

jackcoy_2@hotmail.com for anything.

    |
G#m*| x 11 13 13 12 11
    |
F#m*| x 9 11 11 10 9
