Albums: Our Bright Future
Tabbed by: Joel C.

Version: This is a transcription of the version "Live Acoustic on RTL" on Youtube
and of the original album version.

Tuning: Standard EADGBe

C         G         Am        F
EADGBe    EADGBe    EADGBe    EADGBe
x32010    320030    x02210    xx3210


Structure: P1 P2 P1 P1 P2 P1 P3 P4 P5 P2 P1...

for the right hand fingering you have two choices:
1) either the alternance of middle finger (on the beat) and index finger (upbeat)
This is the fingering typically used in blues picking.
2) or either one finger dedicated to each lower string:
Index finger for the G string,
Middle finger for the B string,
Ring finger for the e string.


Note the bass on the upbeat (instead of on the beat) in the second bar of the chord.
This gives a special pulsation to the song.
