                Crosby, Still, Nash and Young – Helplessly Hoping

I looked around a bit to find a decent tab for this song. There wasn’t one so I had to 
it. I’m still a little new at this, but this attempt is a lot closer then any other tabs 
seen.

The song is finger picked with the thumb assigned to the bottom 3 stings doing a 
bass, and your fingers playing the top three. The song takes place within the major open chord 
having only a few hammer-ons to worry about.

Chords:
  Am7:X02010
    C:032010
    D:XX0232
    G:320003
Fmaj7:XX3210

The verses vary throughout the song, This is the way I hear it, but really you can just 
the chord shapes and experiment around with strumming and picking patterns.
