Murder In The City Tab
So here it is.. the picking pattern is simplified but works just fine if you're flying solo.
They use two guitars in the real song so it's a little weird to replicate.
If anyone has tabs for the two combined, definitely post them!

PS- Mix this pattern with a little strumming, it'll sound great

(Am)No need to (G)get (F)overalarmed(C)
(Am)I'm (G)coming home (C)

I wonder which sibling is better
which one our parents loved the most
I sure did get in lots of trouble
They seemed to let the other go
A tear fell from my fathers eye
I wondered what my dad would say
(Am)He'd say I (G)love you and I'm (F)proud of you (C)both
In so (Am)many (G)different ways(C)

If I get murdered in the city
Go read the letter in my desk
Don't bother with all my belongings
But pay attention to the list
Make sure my sister knows I loved her
Make sure my mother knows the same

(Am)Always remem(G)ber there was (F)nothing worth (C)sharing
like the (Am)love that let us (G)share our name(C)

About the artist behind Murder In The City Tab:

The Avett Brothers are a folk-rock band that originated in Concord, North Carolina. The band is made up of two brothers, Seth Avett and Scott Avett who play the guitar and banjo, respectively, and Bob Crawford, who plays the stand-up bass. They are often joined on tour by cellist Joe Kwon. Risen from the ashes of Seth and Scott's former rock band Nemo, The Avett Brothers combine old-time country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, honky tonk and ragtime to produce a sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the "Heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones." The group themselves eschews labels, feeling that "none would do the music the justice. It's simply left up to each person to extract his or her own account from the Avett's music."

In the past year, The Avett Brothers have gone from relative unknowns to the poster children of a brand new and rapidly growing genre of American music. And while critics and fans alike have trouble agreeing on just what that genre should be called (indie roots, folk-punk, grungegrass, the list goes on and on), no one seems to have any trouble agreeing on the fact that The Avett Brothers are taking American roots music to brand new and exciting places.

Their live performances showcase their use of three-part harmony and southern rock feel, and are admired for being intense, energetic, and soulful.

The band are currently signed to Ramseur Records, based in Concord, NC. Other artists on the label include The Everybodyfields, Bombadil, Martin Stephenson and Samantha Crain & the Midnight Shivers.
