Spoonful of Sugar
Tabbed by Steve Degen  email: steve_degen@hotmail.com
IMPORTANT: This song is tuned down a whole step
e tunes to d If your tuner sucks like mine, throw a capo on the
b tunes to a second fret and tune the guitar to standard.
g tunes to f
d tunes to c
E tunes to D

He plays this song a whole step down on the album but you can also 
play it in standard tuning which he does when he performs the song
by himself...there's a video of him playing it by himself on youtube
if you wanna check it out

The picking technique he uses for this song is a little tricky at
first but with a some practice it becomes easier. The G string sort of
acts as the beat because it's the string your always hitting at 
the same time. It might be easier to learn using your fingers
