Tabbed by: Sam Rayner

Tuning: Standard - EADGBe

Previous tabs for this were way off so hopefully this is better.

Sounds like there might be an acoustic guitar playing a D#
chord throughout most of the verses. It's pretty subtle though.

The chord at the end of "Oh Mr Magazine..." might not be perfect
but I've tried to get close.

Enjoy!

Sam
