Ani Difranco – Gravel tab

Ani Difranco
Little Plastic Castles

Standard tuning

Song is basically 3 open chords with a lot of partial chords and hammer-ons and her 
signature staccato style. Sounds a lot harder than it is.

Listen to the song to get the feel for the really fast chord strums and the hammer-ons.

I figured this out from a combination of YouTube videos and listening to the song. I 
play it this way live. Hard to find Ani tabs so I wrote out this one for the Ani fans out there.
