"On the Water" (arr. for solo acoustic)

The picking pattern may vary, but this is how I play the song for solo 
acoustic. It keeps the guitar and bass part together and works very 
well. Watching Paul play it for the few acoustic performances they did 
in 2008 and 2009 helped me work it out a bit, so I can't take full credit.
