Neon - Solo Acoustic Version
As performed on the Carson Daily Show on NBC

Tabbed By Adis K.

Verse finger pattern
--------------------
Basically in the picking you only use your thumb and
index finger but the thumb has two purposes, to slap
the C string (lower E tuned to C) and to pick the G
string.  You use your index to pick the D and B strings.

e|x
B|Index Finger Pick
G|Thumb Pick (sometimes Index Finger pick after Thumb)
D|Index Finger Pick
A|x
C|Thumb slap

The G string example where the Index Finger sometimes
is used is on a chord looking like this:

e|--------------|
B|--------6-----| Index Pick
G|------5----5--| Thumb Pick, Index Pick
D|----8---------| Index Pick
A|--------------|
C|--7-----------| Thumb Slap

The second "5" on the G string is picked with your
index finger.

HI. Why do we have to use only the thumb and index finger to pick ?
