  This tablature attempts to establish the picking pattern used in the
beginning of the recorded song. The fretted hand position alternates
between a G chord and a D chord, however using non-standard fingerings.
The bass notes are played in a Travis picking pattern with the thumb,
while the index plucks the melody, the notes of which are fretted by
the pinky in the first position and the index in the second. While JTE
varies the melody pattern throughout the song, this should serve as a
reliable foundation for figuring out the rest.
