Super ecstatic to hear of announcement of the Mumford and Sons Calgary to Telluride Tour kicking off in, well, Calgary on May 21st, 2013. Unfortunately, tickets are a touch commodity to come by. 

In the spirit of that, here's a video acoustic guitar lesson from Todd Downing/Youtube.

Lyrics: Whispers in the Dark:

You hold your truth so purely
Well swerve not through the minds of manThis lie is dead

And this cup of yours tastes holyBut a brush with the Devilcan clear your mindAnd strengthen your spine


But fingers tap into what you were onceAnd I'm worried that I blew my only chance

Whispers in the darkSteal a kiss and you'll break your heartPick up your clothes and curl your toesLearn your lesson, lead me home


Spare my sins for the arkI was too slow to departI'm a cad but I'm not a fraudI'd set out to serve the Lord

But my heart was colder when you'd gone

And I lost my head but found the one that I loveUnder the sun, under the sun

But fingers tap into what you were onceAnd I'm worried that I blew my only chanceFingers tap into what you were onceAnd I'm worried that I blew my only chance


But my heart was colder when you'd goneAnd I lost my headLet's live while we are youngWhile we are young, while we are youngWhile we are young
