***NOTES***
1. On this song, whenever there is a hammer to do, put down the normal fingering
for the entire chord, even though you wont play some of the strings you put your
fingers down for.  If you don't do this, then you may hear some notes you don't
want to hear riniging off of the strings you are'nt using.

2. Both the Verses and the Chorus always have the same note progression
respectively, just different picking and strumming patterns throughout the song.

it sometimes sounds like he's playing a Gm instead of a G, that or there just shouldn't be a capo...
