I think the word "epic" is thrown around too much lately. In my mind, it means huge and almost
over-dramatic, while still hitting you hard, which I think describes this song perfectly.

Tabbed for a singer friend of mine. This is an interpretation of the piano, not a note for 
note transcription.

E Standard (finger style)

Bridge 1 (1:00)
...I think you can call it the bridge, right?
You can just play straight chords, or you can do this.

Outro (2:39)
Same chord structure as Bridge 1, goes on till the ending

Okay, I know it looks harsh, but you don't need to be some old Spanish maestro to do it. Aside from
the first low note, keep a barre at the fourth fret and your middle and ring finger on the top fifth
frets on the E and B string. Use your pinky to hit the low notes and then your index finger to hit the
first low note on repeats. The top repeating notes are on beat, so you shouldn't have too much trouble.

That should do it. There's little bits of electric guitar sprinkled throughout the song, but
I doubt that's what you're here for. Have fun.
