It's mostly a fingerpick along with a bass playing the low notes. Lyrics Goin past Golden Gate Elementary everyday Kids down colorful hill Recess and fire drills She likes the side without the heat Where the sun don't beat She likes the cooler side of Washington street Hummingbirds pigeons and doves Hover rooftops above Lights shine down into the tides Over hillsides See where the bridge and mountain meet At the mouth of the sea Where the sailboats live a day And turn away With the purple evening Losing our loving hold In the skies fluorescent glow She takes her thoughts and cares Into the moonlit alley stairs Still in my hand I feel the sting And the sound of bells ring And the memory of the face Never washes away With the current evening Tuning Instructions: Play an open low E(6th string) and an open D(4th)string at the same time. Lower the E string until you begin to hear the same tone. To fine tune, play the low E(now D) string at the 7th fret and tune it to the open D(4th) string.
