Artist: Bon Iver
 Album: For Emma, Forever Ago
  Song: The Wolves (Act I & II) (Ver 2)

[http://www.indieguitartabs.com/bands/bon_iver/the_wolves_act_i_ii_ver_2.html]

Tabbed by: Liam Dempsey

Allow me to be the first to say that this tuning may be quite inaccurate, and is nothing like
I've really seen. Yet after repeated listening, this is the closest I've come to the album and
I think it's virtually identical.

Tuning: Open F9 (FFCFGG) Have an extra set of strings handy...

This song is recorded with two guitars: the one panned left emphasizes the lower three strings
 while the right emphasizes the higher three and occasionally embellishes.
