As an avid Iron and Wine listener and finger picker, I have found the holy grail! This
song is one that I know a ton of you have wanted to play. This is probably the most
tab out there. I don't know what you have read or seen in the past, but this is probably 
most accurate. I rated this song advanced because it requires much finger picking skill
accuracy, plus a natural groove and rhythm. It's also VERY difficult to sing over.

And for the record, if there are ever notes in parentheses, they are optional; I think
makes it a little easier to flow from one part to the next without sounding wrong.

Sam Beam does 4 different finger picking parts:


The Pickup (First 3 Intervals)
Fingering:


e---------|
B--/3-1-0-| Index, Middle, or Ring Finger [I think Middle is Easiest]
G---0-----|
D--/4-2-0-| Thumb
A---------|
E---------|
(when doing this little riff, the Open G isn't necessary)


and then the 3 separate versions of the same thing:

==============Part 1============

"Cmaj Shape"
Chord: Cmaj (pinky on 3rd fret of e String)
Fingering:
   T I T M   R
e------------3------------|
B--------0h1----/3-1-0----|
G----0-----------0--------|
D------2--------/4-2-0----|
A--3----------------------|
E-------------------------|


==========Part 2=============
"Em Shape"
Chord: Em

Fingering:
*RM= Ring or Middle Finger

    T   T *RM  T
e-----------0----------------|
B------------------/3-1-0----|
G-------------------0--------|
D--(2)--2------2---/4-2-0----|
A--(2)-----------------------|
E---0------------------------|

==========Part 3=========
"Alternate Cmaj Shape"
(This one is the hardest)
Fingers:
   T  I  R    M
e--------3p0----------------|
B-------------1---/3-1-0----|
G-----0------------0--------|
D------------(2)---/4-2-0---|
A--3------------------------|
E---------------------------|

Okay, now this is the most difficult part of all---playing them in order.

You start out with the intro, and then play the parts in this order:

(Pickup)...then
1-2-1-2-|
3-2-1-2-|
1-2-3-2-|
1-2-1-2-|

Perfect tab 5 stars! Although, the playing pattern doesn't seem like it's in the right order for the whole song. It
sounds like it changes when it enters the verse. Do you know what happens when this does? If not I'll try and figure
it out...
