Laura Marling – What He Wrote tab

Well this is my first tab! This is a song my friend Justin taught me, and he
learned it from a studio acoustic session of this song, so it's right for
that... I've just written it all down.
It's super easy to play once you get the hang of it... your two fingers
never leave the lower D and F# strings. There are little changes in the
picking every once in a while that you'll have to listen for. Enjoy!

TUNING:  D A D F# A D
CAPO: 2nd fret
