Joanna Newsom - Sprout And The Bean tab

e---C#B---G#G---ED---BA---G#E---C#
If your guitar won't do drop tunings like this one very well, you can just stay in and tune up your A string to be a B. A tuning that also works is D standard but the A string stays the same. I'm a classical guitarist that likes to play pop music so...this is a really hard tab. the basics of the verse:
-9------9--------10--------9----9------|---7--7---7--7------10---7----7----7---|---9--9---9--9---------9------9----9---|---7--7---7--7-------------7-----------|--------0------0-----------------------|-10----------------------0-------------|
A variation on rhythm that's thrown around a lot:
----9---9-----9---9----|------7---7-----7---7--|------9---9-----9---9--|------7---7-----7---7--|------------0----------|-10--------------------|
this next part is a good transition back to the beginning of the verse lick: ie: and I..
raved---10-10--9-9--7-7--2-2--|--------------------0-0--|---7--7---6-6--4-4--2-2--|---7--7---7-7--5-5-------|-0------------------0----|-------------------------|
the basics of the pre chorus and chorus: . here's where i get sorta nuts...the interlude into the next chorus {x} indicate left hand harmonics x[x] indicate left hand fret, [right hand harmonics] ie: 4[16] is fretted at the 4th, and plucked at the 16th with the right. open right hand have no beginning number. Basically just play the chord and then the harmonic part. If i were to call these 6 different measures you would play them in this order: measure measure 3, 2, 4, 1, 5, 2, 6

this part is very difficult. left hand bar the 5th with pinky, right hand index on 17, m a are plucking. notice the second half change to left hand harmonics.

play the verse, prechorus, and chorus all over and then end with: outro:

Some of these chords seem insane, well...they are. like the beginning chord up to the 10 all played as one chord. And on the 9 9 9 9 16...I sustain the 9's and really stretch hit 16. have fun! -jomarkdave
