NOTE >: Figure 1 is played as follows - 1h3p1p0
Figure 1 begins on the downbeat of the measure, so the note on the first fret of the B 
string is played at
the same time as the note on the third fret of the E string. You play the first two 
notes with a pinch, and this is the only pluck you use. The rest of the notes in the figure 
are achieved with hammer-ons and
pull-offs. If there is any confusion consult the video - 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MO_Xxq3LVw&feature=kp

An easier version of this figure can be played as follows - 0h1p0

The timing is the same for both the actual and the easy figure.


                                 Variations

Sometimes instead of F, Jansch just repeats E.

For the first B in each verse, Jansch plays the following:

e|----------------|
B|fg1-------------|
G|------2---0-----|
D|----0-------0---|
A|----------------|
E|3-------3-------|
