Life is Like a Boat - Rie Fu
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Phil Crossland
Email: prasopchai@live.co.uk

Tuning: Standard
Capo: 3rd Fret

Notes: This tab is based off YouTube user's jc1762's version of 
Life is Like a Boat. It is not 100% accurate but it is the closest
I can get to it.

Also, I couldn't entirely work out his MINI SOLO after the first 
chorus so I have improvised and created a more simpler but similar 
version.

The BRIDGE here has 2 versions - you could either continue the 
melody from the chrous or, what I like to do, is play the 
individual notes from the chords.

Speaking of chords, if you don't like finger-plicking, I'll have 
the basic chord structure for the song at the bottom - 
it's a bit straight forward however. I might have got some of the 
names of the chords wrong but the finger positions should be
correct.

Heck, if you want, you can mix the finger-plicking with some 
chords, up to you :)
