HANGING TREE (WraiteS / SchulTz)


Beautiful song from a lousy movie (ya,ya, sorry, I mean to say not my taste….) 

Written by Jeremiah Fraites and Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers. Irresistible hookline. My daughters used to drive me crazy humming this all day. Nowadays they hum something completely untabable.


Original Key

A minor



gCEA, Low G also works


Tab Notes 

Three parts,  [ A ] and [ B ] are single note variations of the verse, [ C ] is a fingerstyle variation over the verse chord progression. 

This tune is a wonderful basis for improvisation and fiddling around.
