Gregory Alan Isakov – August Clown tab

                             August Clown by Gregory Alan Isakov
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: scdavis01

Tuning: Standard

Strum the parts marked as chords from top to bottom quickly with the thumb to get the
same effect as on the recording. Isakov is obviously less strict with the playing and
plays more sloppily, and beautifull, for that matter, than this tab suggests, so listen 
to the recording if you are nitpicky. The verses and chorus are all very similar in chord
structure, so listen to the song for any minor changes from the first verse to the 
others. Thanks.
