Man in a shed
by Nick Drake
Taken from the album "Time of no reply"
Transcribed by Nick Gill (Number6@mindless.com)

Tuning: Open G5 (CGCGCG, low to high); it's easier on the strings if you tune to
open F5 (Bb,F,Bb,F,Bb,F, low to high) and capo up to 2nd fret (adjust to suit 
vocal range).

Notes:
1. The intro and outro are in straight time, with the main themes and tunes 
being in swing time (easier to play than to describe; listen to the record to 
get a better idea).  

2. The two straight time sections are, pretty much, in free time, but stick 
roughly to the tempo of the main tune.

3. The verse section is roughly the same throughout; however, since Nick was a 
bit of an improviser, it's a case of "take this as a guideline".

4. This particular transcription is taken from his original demo recording, 
rather than the final cut from "Five Leaves Left"; they're similar, but not 
identical.  Personally, I prefer the solo acoustic version; I think the piano 
makes it sound a bit too jolly and hearty, and the bass part (while being great) 
detracts from the descending bass on the acoustic.  Anyway, you can make your 
own minds up.
