Misc Unsigned Bands – The Swell Season - Falling Slowly tab

The previous tab was nearly spot-on, but I tried to add in some of the notes contributed 
the piano so that if you're playing this on guitar without a piano, that it 'sounds' 
like the complete song. Obviously, use your better judgment.
Don't let the lengthy chord names fool you, they're rather simple changes (see bottom of 
for chord diagrams). Many chords use the thumb over the top to get the low E string.
Cheers,
