PINK MOON
     
Tuning CGCFCE capo 2nd fret (slightly sharp of concert)
     


This song involves a lot of strumming, so here are the 
tab positions used, with a rough guide to their timing.
A strong thumbnail helps emphasise the riff on upstrokes.

* This is what I hear on the bottom string, but if it is not
quiet enough you'll lose the main descending riff. These three
chords are all thumbnail upstrokes, so try not to
catch too much bottom string. If it sounds wrong try not
fretting the bottom string, and just avoid strumming it (or
damp it with left hand)

     
  VERSE (keep top string quietest)

(personally I like the second half like this
but not the first half...)
