  1. Hei guys, was just playing this and I saw your posts.. from the new moon song I think you can hear the A string playing a D sound (instead of it being the D string) so I think you could slide from Cmaj7/G to a chord that I don’t know the name but i play like (776x5x)

    But anyway, just my 2 cents =p

    Keep on playing!

  2. you did a good job with this mate mad respect. ive sat on the corner of my bed playing this song to the night for months now. beautiful. thanks

  3. Yah I noticed that too actually after noon moon came out… You have to realize I tabbed this from an awful quality live version before we ever had a studio version. I usually play it sliding up to D/A (554030) I think but I wanna listen more closely before I change the tab. Just another one of those things to be fixed.

  4. i love this song .. it’s so fun to play it with your tab. just one thing that i can’t figure out is the slide up from Cmaj7/G in the Chorus part. On the recording you can hear elliott sliding up with some fingers .. dunno to what chord is is sliding to. Sorry may i’m to accurate .. but thats one thing i really wanna know. Funny indeed .. 😀
