                Frank Turner's fantastic cover of The Foundations' Build Me Up Buttercup. Enjoy! 

In the verse and chorus, play with the same picking pattern as the first bar unless
indicated otherwise. The one part which isn't 100% true to the recording is that the
low F in the 2nd bar of the verse is actually played an 8ve above that in the 1st
verse, but I prefer the sound of the low F.

Chorus - on this chorus, the Fm6/D is simply plucked and held for the bar rather than being
         fingerpicked, and the final C is strummed. I quite like to strum a Cmaj7 instead...
