Back Broke  The Swell Season

BACK BROKE by The Swell Season
Tabbed by: Jon Ransom

I've seen Glen play this live at a show here in Portland and I've noticed what chords he
and the general sound/feel of the song. It has much the same structure as his song
The Way Down" from the Once film soundtrack. He does a Bm/F# guitar walk sort of thing
beautiful and haunting. He also has a capo on the 2nd fret. There aren't that
chords to the song and it's fairly easy to play. I think this tab is about 99%
There's one aspect of the chord changes that I can't get just from watching him play it live
listening to the recorded version. But this is fun to play and sounds damn close to the
This is technically my first tab I've ever done. And be sure to put
soul into it, I know Glen would appreciate it! Cheers mates!
