This is a stunningly beautiful song, though I found the tab versions already posted
online sounded a little different from the original recording. So here is my ‘fixed
up’ version of the tab the way I play it, for all my fellow fans of this gorgeous
track.

This is lovely sounding and very simple to play, once you figure out the shape and
the correct notes. Here is the simple way of playing it for ‘small hands’ - just put
a capo on 3rd fret.

I have tabbed in relation to the capo, so the ‘0’ is the open note with capo on 3rd
fret. The bracketed notes can be played alternatively. Try to maintain a slow, even
plucking throughout the whole song.
Enjoy  :)
