   The fingerpicking in this song is pretty simple. You just hit the
   bass string once, then pick the E B G strings, the exact notes are
   not important, just do it in the right rhythm.
   
   CHORDS:
   
      
   E (022100)    Asus4 (x02230)
   A (x02220)    F#    (244322)
   D (xx0232)    C#m   (x46654)
   C (x32010)    G#m   (466444)

TAB FOR VERSE 1: it's impossible to tab out
   the picking EXACTLY like it is, he picks the E B and G strings
   kinda randomly, but this is as close as I could get)

   FILL 1:            b = bend up     r = release bend

   Verse 2 and the rest of the song is just strummed. The only thing
   to remember is that the electric guitar sometimes throws in two
   little fills, one on the E chord, and one on the D chord.
