About this tab version
There are so many variations of this song that Jackson plays live and this is just one of many. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yufoq3T-z_w I have tabbed this using the dropped G and showing the finger picking pattern that Jackson uses to play this song live. The original is tuned down half a step. From 1:50 in this youtube video you can clearly see how Jackson plays it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwPqaFZ4MhM To see how he plays during the chorus and verse this video is useful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgyjhIsK7UY.
