Transcribed by Iain Sword


All guitars tuned down one full step to:

The timing is not quite right so listen to the song
to get an idea of exactly how the finger picking should
be played.

The strumming here is not quite right on the G chord but listen to the recording and you'll soon get it right.

Well there it is, it's a little rough in places but you should be able to work out the whole song from here. Hope you enjoy, it really is a great song. If you have any comments or queries please mail me at: <97118117@student.napier.ac.uk> I would also be very grateful if someone would either post on the OLGA or mail me the solo. Have Fun !!!
