*** The chord names are written above the words where they are played in the recordings 
for those who sing and play.

*** As always, listen to the song for strumming and chord changes.  This is only a rough 
guide on how to play the song easily.

*** I rated this as novice because the timing takes a little listening and practice to 
play it like he does.

*** Also, it sounds to me like he plays without a Capo, and when I perform this song I 
usually play it without a Capo, with a sharp acoustic guitar sound with reverb, and using 
barred chords.

*** Generally I have no problem with downloading, but Rodriguez got screwed by everyone. 
 He deserves your money and support, so if you like the songs, please BUY his album.
