Sufjan Stevens ---> The Transfiguration
Tabbed for guitar by Hunter (poroustourist@hotmail.com) 04.25.04

*This song is played on a banjo but here I have tabbed it for acoustic guitar.
I do believe the chorus has a more intricate picking part, but I have chosen to
instead list the chords and a general strumming pattern. So, take this for what
it is: just an outline! Please enjoy it...
