This is my first tab so bear with me. This is how I taught myself to play it. It may 
a bit confusing at first, but play along with the song and you should do fine. The song is 
acoustic version of “If I Could Be Like That” by 3 Doors Down.

Legend:
\ = down stroke (strumming)
/ = up stroke (strumming)
X = string not played / muted
