I have a hard time with coming up how to pick this beautiful song called "The Avalanche" by Sufjan Stevens. I hope some of you guys will help me with this task. Preferably by writing it as a tab to me.

To make it easier for you I have the chords here:

Plus a video to show how it should be played:

I will buy an icecream to those who helps me.

Ahh, I've been looking for this tab myself, also. This is probably the prettiest Sufjan song I've ever heard. It's absolutely gorgeous.

Anyway. I wouldn't call myself a champion at writing tabs, but I'll see what I can do.

Stay tuned! Heh.

Okay. Here's... well, something, at least. Heh.

It is by no means exact, but it's kind of close.

See what you think:

D (minus middle finger):
E-------0----------
B-0h3-----3--------
G-----------2------
D-----0------------
A-0----------------
E------------------


Am (with finger on E string, 3rd fret):
E---------3---------
B-1---------1-------
G----2--------2-----
D------2------------
A-0-----------------
E-------------------


And then kind of while you're switching to the next chord, do something like this:

E----------
B----------
G------0---
D-0h2------
A----------
E----------


F chord:
E--------------------
B-------1------------
G-0h2-----2----------
D-----3-----3--------
A-0------------------
E--------------------


C chord:
E--------------------
B-1------0h1p0-------
G---0----------0-----
D-----2--------------
A-3------0-----------
E--------------------

I'm sorry, but that isn't right at all.

Isn't there anyone out there who knows how to play this song? :/

Apparently not.

I'm sorry it didn't work.

Okey, last try. It has been some time since last, and maybe someone is sitting out there with an excellent tab now.

Please?
