                        James Arthur - Impossible
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cover by: Ian Cheong
Tabbed by: Kevin Jurkowski

Tuning: Standard
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Watch the video by Ian first (https://youtu.be/7YPk8T6MerM), then play it
again while reading the tabs and following along to get the rhythm down.

Decided to make this tab since people have been asking for it for years,
yet no one has bothered to spend a few hours to actually tab it.

My very first tab. Was pretty easy to do since the notes aren't very fast.

Playing the video at 50% speed on YouTube helped lots...
