Ben Howard – Gracious chords ver. 2

Chords
Transpose:
Ben Howard wrote this song to be played with a capo on the second fret with CFCFGC
tuning, which sounds totally beautiful and is very fun to play. However, if you are
interested in playing the song sans capo and in standard tune, I tabbed out a version 
that doesn't sound exactly like his, but it suffices for a quick play.

The trick is to minimize changes in the treble notes of the chords while emphasizing the
base. Often, the only finger that moves between chords is your index finger.

Pick through the chords in a pattern that makes sense to you, and listen well to his
version to get the changes right.


Also, these lyrics is ratchet. I copy-pasted them from the internet; sorry 'bout it.
