**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. ************************************ | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note | b Bend | pb Pre-bend | br Bend release | pbr Pre-bend release | brb Bend release bend ************************************
