================================================================================
The structure of this song is very simple: Intro - Verse 1 - Verse 2 - Bridge - 
Verse 3.

The intro is mainly played in a very quick finger-picking style, except for the 
last part, which is played by strumming the chords and accentuating the bass 
lines with your thumb. 

The rest of the song is played in the same style as the last part of the intro. 

Beneath the tab I have put symbols for which fingers to use to pick the notes 
tabbed. The symbol on top is the one for the highest note of course. These are 
suggestions ‘cause you might want to use other fingers, but these are the ones I 
use myself.

t = thumb
i = index finger
m = middle finger
r = ring finger
v = stroke down (use index finger)
^ = stroke up (use thumb)

On Youtube you can watch me play this, maybe it is of any help to you:

Verses:

To vary the stroking of the hight strings a bit, don't stroke the exact same 
strings each time when going up and down. I tabbed the same notes to stroke in 
each chord shape, to make it easier to understand and to remember.

Verse 1 and 2 are identical, verse 3 has a few small variations which are
noted on the right side.

YW. An update will follow soon, I changed my mind on which fingers to use to do the fingerpicking. Further the G* chord is easier to play in open position.

It's updated, I think the fingerpicking patterns are 'correct' now. The G* chord can be played in open position as well, depends on your own preference I guess.
