The World Is As Soft As Lace Tab

More Felt Tabs

Artist: Felt
  Song: The World Is As Soft As Lace

Tabbed by: Kent V

Note: Certainly not 100% accurate, particularly the chorus. Arpeggiating
over G D Em chords works, imho. G is a barre C chord at the 7th fret, 
D is a barre E chord at the 10th fret and Em is a barre Am chord at the 
7th fret.

Use either option A or option B, one stays at the 12th fret but makes 
the jump down to the nut slower, the second puts you down there earlier 
but may be harder to play fast enough. Good luck.
