Capo 1st Fret

Tab follows the lead, be it guitar or piano, and arpeggiates
during strummed chords for (in my opinion) a better one-guitar sound.
Do your own thing make it your own.

NOTE:  Chords written above tablature are suggested strumming chords, not
       the arpeggiated chords.

[Chorus]

End with the Intro.  For a basic ending just play
 the D string open right after the last bar of the intro
 or make up your own riff ending.  I'm lazy.
