                             BROTHER DOWN - Sam Roberts
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


K so I wanted to make a simpler version of this tab. Just chords and the little sequence 
of notes afterwards.

The strumming pattern is basically                            Down    Down   up  up  up 
down(pulloff)   down
If you listen to the song, it makes a lot more sense then if you read that right there ^^^

                  I like to switch between the endings to the chords thing

Ditto for this one. (Less frequently, but it still sounds fine.)(Also can pull of to 
open e)
