God Help The Girl - I Just Want Your Jeans tab


Chords in parenthesis are relative to a capo on the 8th fret.
Capo at 3 would work, but 8 sounds closest to the album, where
I think the guitarist is barring everything way up the neck.
The instrumental bridge is tabbed at the bottom.
Let me know if I made any mistakes.

The recording is a little flat, A=435ish, so youíll sound
a little off pitch unless you tune down accordingly.

Weird chords:
For the capo 8 chords, you can hold the Em shape and just
accent the higher notes, or only play the higher notes.
