Lauren Oconnell – I Belong To You tab

Standard Tuning

Tabbed June 2012

To make the tab more concise I've written out the major themes as labelled blocks 
which are repeated in different orders throughout the verse/choruses.  I've also 
spread the lyrics out to make it easier to line up the tabs and make it easier 
when first learning the song.

Ryan does not use full alternate thumb picking on the baseline, but it holds 
together better with solo in my opinion as it reproduces the rhythm of the 
percussion to an extent.
