                 THE GOLDFISH SONG - Kina Grannis
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I decided to tab this out properly, as the last version just showed you the picking 
and didn't write the whole song out. Also, the version on her CD is slightly different, so 
goes! Rate & comment!

Tuning: Capo 1,  EGDGBe  (tune the A string down one whole step to G)

(+ is a harmonic! But this is not really necassary!)
