For those of you who might

For those of you who might not know, the bracketed [19]'s in measures 2-5 are supposed to be artificial harmonics, which means that you tap the string above the 19th fret with the index finger of your picking hand while picking the string with the thumb of the same hand. It's kind of a tricky technique at first, but once you get the hang of it it's rather simple and offers extra flexibility. You should see the kind of stuff Tommy Emmanuel does with artificial harmonics, such as his intro to Michelle. It'll blow you away!

Nice tab, man. I like this

Nice tab, man. I like this song and arrangement a lot.

By the way, I fixed up the formatting of the tab a little bit so that it doesn't stretch the page as much... in the future you may want to use guitar pro as it won't stretch the page at all. I can send you the program if you want.

Thanks, buddy. I actually

Thanks, buddy. I actually already have guitar pro...but I got it after I got powertab, and I've been reluctant make some guinea pig tabs as I get used to a new program, and couldn't really see the advantage of it besides that it works better for having multiple instruments. I guess now is as good a time as any to get used to it, though.

nice!
