Ill Be Acoustic Tab

   
In the song, there may be slight variations to the picking pattern here and there, but 
this tab is quite accurate.

I know this tab may look daunting but it's really not that difficult.
Get familiar with the hand positions first and the rest will be easier.

I also recommend learning this on an electric first, unless you want cramps in your fret hand.

I'm positive there are no mistakes but if you think otherwise you
can e-mail me at ben_heung@hotmail.com.
