                             -----------------------


 All notes are relative to the capo.  That is, an open string is in fact the
   first fret of the guitar.  The same applies to the chord diagrams below
         - the E position is in reality the F position (1st fret).

 The capo on the first fret is only really necessary if you want to match the
 pitch of the original song, which is a half-step higher than it would be if you
 play without the capo.  Not using a capo is also handy for live performances
                  if you prefer to use "concert pitch" tuning.
