Original Contribution by: Connor O.
Tuning: Standard
Capo: 6th

This song definitely uses a capo on the 6th fret, as user "nick winwood" said in his tab
(Ver 1). His tab is good but not complete, so I am going to try and tab the entire song.

Album version is played with an acoustic guitar. A second guitar, electric, plays fills
with a slide (I know that Dan owns a Dunlop 220 brass for sure, could be anything
though). I'll tab the lead as best I can. Keep in mind that playing throughout the song 
is rather soft and muddled by vocals/drums.

More about the song, it's based off the C |032010| and Fmaj7 |003210| chords (same basis
for Goin' Home of Dan's solo album). It's finger-picked all the way.

Comment with ideas/corrections.

Key:
where # represents a number

#h# - hammer
#p# - pull
/ \ - slides, up and down respectively.
* * - Under chord boxes, signifies me throwing in something random
      because I have no idea what's going on
