This is a guitar transcription that includes the melody. As a lot of Elliott Smith’s songs feature lots of separate guitars and vocals, I tried to make this version contain as much as possible on one guitar. The picking pattern is easier to figure out if you separate it into the bass notes, which start 3 2 3 2 on the A and D strings, and the melody which is all the other notes. Verse:
