Glen Hansard And Marketa Irglova – Falling Slowly tab

Nobody has had it right so far.  And while none can be perfect, this is MUCH
more accurate than any of the others out there.   Enjoy!


[Intro] (looks like Glen uses his thumb to play the low F) e|-----------0---------------1---0-----------0--------------------------------| B|---1---3-------3---1---3-----------1---3-------3---1---1---1---1------------| G|-----0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2----------| D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| A|---3-------------------------------3----------------------------------------| E|-------------------1-------------------------------1------------------------|
[Verse 1 - same as intro] (match up the chords for the timing of lyrics)
C F C F e|-----------0---------------1---0-----------0--------------------------------| B|---1---3-------3---1---3-----------1---3-------3---1---1---1---1------------| G|-----0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2----------| D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| A|---3-------------------------------3----------------------------------------| E|-------------------1-------------------------------1------------------------| C F C F I don't know you, but I want you all the more for that

[Verse 2 (this part is an approximation but is close; piano and vocals kind of drown out the guitar, so just play some similar arpeggio based on the chords]
