Hi There!   I've been playin' around with some easy
picking patterns for the first verse of this great song 
and have come up with this:)  If you want to pick through-
out, go for it!  I think it sounds great, playing right 
along with the song:)

              ************Have Fun & Rate**********
                             Thanks:)
