Porcupine Tree – London tab ver. 2

"Recorded on 22nd January 1997, this was a simple acoustic guitar / voice demo recorded
live with just one piano overdub. It never went any further, but the lyrics were
recycled for Don't Hate Me (from Porcupine Tree's "Stupid Dream" album) later that 
year." - Steven Wilson on SoundCloud

Standard Tuning
Capo 1

Contrary to popular belief, this song does not actually use the same chords as Waiting,
so I decided to figure them out. The song requires quite a bit of stretching across the
fingerboard, so if you don't have big enough hands, you'll have to figure out an 
alternate way of playing it.

-This tab is relative to the capo.
-The bracketed numbers by the chords differentiate between chords shapes.
-I've only marked one of the hammer-ons because the rest are fairly easy to figure out.
