I don't know what criteria is used to approve tabs here, but since i can't get my tab approved, and the only other 2 tab versions of nantes have wrong basslines and/or wrong melody and harmony at all, i'll post my tab here

The thing with this song is that it's chords are easy to figure, but it's also hard to get the right voicing without a capo.
Follow these tabs instead of just strumming and you'll get your notes to be very close to the original! Hope you enjoy.

TIP 1: try fingerpicking instead of using a pick. use your thumb for the bass notes, and the fingers 1, 2 and 3 for the G, B and e strings

TIP 2: if you wish to play on standart tunning, just play everything 1 fret higher, i tabbed half step down 'cause it's how my guitar is tunned, and its easier to play if your guitar doesn't have cutaway.

TIP 3: after the intro, add some arpeggios here and there... they make this song delicious!

TIP 4: tabs look awful on the forum... it's better if you copy/paste it on your notepad before reading
(also, it seems i can't add extra spacing, so i can't add chords exactly where i wanted to, but the rythm is the same throught the whole song, so no problems)
