Capo II
Tabbed by Eric Schwartz

Guitar uses "Travis picking" style (you can google it for more info), picked mainly on the lower 4 strings.

For example, on G:

     |1 Meas.|
     |       |
 e|-------------------------------------|
 A|---------0-------0-------0-------0---|
 D|-----0-------0-------0-------0-------|
 G|-------0-------0-------0-------0-----|
 B|-------------------------------------|
 E|---3-------3-------3-------3---------|
     |                                |
     |<--------- 4 Measures --------->|

For this song's tempo, each measure lasts about a second.

Chords and Picking



  • Only one measure of picking shown per chord. Notes in parenthesis are accent notes, occasionally replace the note below with the
    accent note when you feel like it (you can hear it in the song).


      G             G*            Am7           C*            G/B           C             Cmin
 e|--------(3)--|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
 A|---------0---|---------0---|--------(0)--|-------------|-------------|---------1---|---------0---|
 D|-----0-------|-----2-------|---------0---|---------0---|---------0---|-----0-------|-----0-------|
 G|-------0-----|-------0-----|-----0-------|-----0-------|-----0-------|-------2-----|-------1-----|
 B|-------------|-------------|-------3-----|-------7-----|-------5-----|---3---------|---3---------|
 E|---3---------|---3---------|---5---------|---8---------|---7---------|-------------|-------------|

Sorry for the odd notation, but these aren't the typical formations of some of these chords.

NOTE: The G* chord is just a variation on the G, exchange it for the regular G when you feel like it for a nice accent (you can also
hear it in the song, esp in the intro)
