Come Downstairs and Say Hello


Based off of Guster on Ice During the break, Adam switches guitars from a capo 2, standard tuning to what I think is an open D, capo 5 guitar. I just tabbed the entire song out to be played solo, dropped D tuning, with a capo on the second fret (but leaving the low D open). For the picking on the Csus2 and Fsus2, there is some slight variation each time Adam plays it (for example, he doesnt always play the note in parenthesis on the Csus2). The second "verse" is more strumming than the first verse. I play this with a capo on the second fret but leaving the low E string open, which I tune down to D. Everything in this tab is relative to the capo--therefore I write a C for the bottom string when it is actually a D note. A 0 on that string denotes open, whereas a 5 means 5 frets above the capo (or the 7th fret).
