Better After All
Words & Music by Jonatha Brooke

Transcribed by:  Marian <marian@jmdl.com>

Notes:  

Jonatha says the tuning is:

Tuning:  CGDGBbD + 3-string capo on the 5th fret

However, I am wondering if the Bb should really be a B, because Bb makes 
the tuning sound like a minor key and the song is in a major key, so
I used the tuning of 

CGDGBD 

- i.e., I changed the Bb of the second string in Jonatha's tuning to B.

One other thing that I do not know is to which three adjacent strings is
the three-string capo applied?  

For this transcription I applied it to strings 2,3,4 (B,G,D), so that the 
final tuning is:


CGGCED

VG-8 pitches:  -2 5 5 0 -2 -4  (left to right, highest to lowest strings)

I have given only the basic patterns.
