About this tab version
Acoustic fingerstyle (for singing over), no capo. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Finger pick and slap acoustic guitar tutorial that follows the main guitar riff heard in the song. Includes
'ghost picking' to keep time and rythmn between notes. These are basically done by plucking 
when your fretting hand is muting the strings so you get a deadened sound.

Slaps are indicated by X. When there are fret numbers included with Xs, do a slap flick to include the notes
at the same time as the slap.
Ghost picks are indicated by the fretted note in brackets, so e.g. (7) or (9)

Standard tuning, no capo
