Good job on your first tab... generally when you tab put the high strings at the top, that will help others utilize your
tab easier. I am playing the intro on the E string (not the B string) and it sounds pretty good there. I think it
facilitates the hammers/pulls. The first chord of the chorus also sounds good as 5 on E and 4 on A. Also you have a
stray 19 in the bridge, I'm sure that was an accident as you were reaching for the 0 key. All in all a good work. How
on earth did you figure out that tuning? I've played in a lot of alt. tunings but never have I come across this one. I
like it, very dulcimer/bagpipe sounding, which is obviously what they were going for on this one. Many thanks.

cool...thx...yea the 19 was by accident.....but i found a video on youtube of david playing and he said he was playing
in that tuning...and he basically tought u how to play it..but it was poor video quality..and his fingers were hard to
tell what strings he was on..but yea....all in all...not bad...cuz no one else had tabbed it..so im satisfied on account
of it was my first.

that was good! the whole point of the song is to be playing every string on almost everything, though. it sounds more open, as Crowder breezes over in saying in the vid- next time you watch it, look at the strings- most of them are always playing.
