This is one of the most moving songs I've ever heard and certainly the most challenging
I've tabbed. The first moment I saw him play it (the opening song at Zellerbach in
Berkeley, CA April 28th 2010) I knew I would be playing this song for the rest of my 
life. I hope this tab helps you enjoy this song even more as well.
