Ok this song is really really tricky to pick up on. But with alot of practice it should
be no sweat. I watched him play this live a while back and I tabbed it out note for note.
So everything that is in this tab is what he plays. I tried to make it as easy to read as
possible. This is the acoustic version of this song. In order to play this song the verse
is finger picked which is pretty tricky to do but if you watch him play you can pick up
on it. You can strum the verse but it wont sound as good.

Key:

/ -Slide Up
\ -Slide Down
h -Hammer On
p -Pull Off
~ -Vibrato
x -Muted String
