                             Alpha Shallows - Laura Marling
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: MadClownDisease

Tuning: Standard, capo 4th. Tabbed in relation to capo

A lovely song off Laura Marling's latest (I Speak Because I Can) though admittedly a 
I've had for about a year as it's two years old...
Some parts tabbed off the EP as it's easier to hear, but not much difference (apart from 
verse which is to the album here)
I'm not sure of the picking patterns in this, so just listen.

About the artist behind Alpha Shallows:

Laura Beatrice Marling (born 1 February 1990), is a folk-pop singer-songwriter from Reading, Berkshire, England.

Marling has toured with a number of well-known indie artists in the UK including Jamie T, who personally invited her on tour with him last year after he attended her second-ever gig.

She performed at the 2007 O2 Wireless Festival and also performed at the first Underage Music Festival in August 2007 at Victoria Park, East London.

Her debut single came out on WayOutWest Records, with a new single coming out soon on Virgin Records. She appeared on The Rakes track "Suspicious Eyes", from the band's second album Ten New Messages and Mystery Jets track "Young Love" released 10 March, 2008.[1] from their second album. She often collaborates with indie band Noah and the Whale, and Charlie Fink, lead singer of Noah and the Whale, produced her debut album Alas, I Cannot Swim.[2]

She recently appeared on Later with Jools Holland where she performed the song "New Romantic". Marling's debut album Alas, I Cannot Swim was released on February 4, 2008.

Despite playing sold-out venues over the past few months, Laura has spoken of how she still finds larger venues scary.[3]

Marling was once refused access to one of her own performances, for being underage. She instead chose to perform on the street.[4]

She is currently the supporting artist at the Adam Green concerts in Europe and in New York.[1][2]
