MERRYMAKERS
Music & Lyrics: Daniel Tukia

Tuning: CACGCE (Be careful not to break that b-string, folks...)

This is a fairly difficult tune to get right but start it off slowly
and work your way up to the right tempo. * means that you should
strum the indicated strings with your middle finger while still
keeping a fingerpicking hand position. The form of the song is as
follows: Intro-Verse-Bridge-Chorus-Verse-Bridge-Chorus-Break-Chorus
Remember that the tune should be played with swing feeling as well.
