Shawn recorded this song in Drop C but plays it live in Drop D. Here is the live
version. Because there is so much free movement within these chords, Shawn plays it slightly
different every time. So, listen to some live versions on youtube and play along with to 
get the exact movement, repetition, and strum pattern.
This version looks like its missing some licks, but keep in mind that the studio
recorded version has layered acoustic guitars and live he only has one. Occasionally, 
hit that
low D string when you feel led. Any questions, please ask! Enjoy!
