Lullaby
By Matt Costa

There's no complete TAB to Lullaby...so i figured I'd help out. Please leave  comments
you have any questions or corrections.
This song is played using the Travis picking style used in Astair. The thumb keeps the
constantly alternating bass notes on the E, A, and D strings. The pointer covers the G
the middle takes care of the B, and finally the ring plays the high e.
There are six chords used: C, Barre F, A# or Bb, G, Am, and Em. For each chord marked
the lyrics, play that chord’s pattern once. I have the chords above to exact syllable(I
so pay attention closely. Make the changes on that syllable to help learn the words 
playing. Also, CAPO on the first fret!
Here are the picking patterns for the song…
