                Tuning: Standard

Capo 1

e|--2----2----2----2----2--|--3----3----3----3----3--| As you may have noticed,
B|--3----3----3----3----3--|--3----3----3----3----3--| it is basically just Bm and G
G|--4----4----4----4----4--|--4----4----4----4----4--| (being the high piano part)
D|-(5)--(5)--(5)--(5)--(5)-|-------------------------| along a moving bass of 
A|-----------------3----2--|-----------------3----2--| G, F#, E, C & Bm
E|--3----2----0------------|--3----2----0------------| (which is the cello)


the 5 fret on D string is in brackets as it is optional. 
It is an octave higher than the low G, and to play it you'd need to use your pinky, 
which is why I listed it as optional.

Listen to the piano in the video for strumming rhythm if my tab lacks clarity.
