Damn Everything But The Circus
Words & Music by Jonatha Brooke

Transcribed by:  Marian <marian@jmdl.com>

VG-8 pitches:  -1 -1 -2 -4 -2 -1   (highest to lowest strings)

This is one of the most interesting guitar arrangements I 
have ever transcribed.  It's really a beautiful song!

I'm not certain about the tuning (Jonatha did not give 
a tuning for this song yet at her website), however
this tuning seems to work well.

I only tabbed out the guitar parts you need to put the
whole song together (i.e., haven't done tab for every single
verse - have only notated the essential elements).  The
guitar is exactly the same in every verse.  The between verse
parts are different.  If you have any problems, write to me.
