About this tab version
Detailed picking and accurate notes. Other versions seem to skip the flat-picking, but that's what makes this song amazing. Was this info helpful? Yes No
One of my favorite songs. Other versions seems to leave out the flat-picking and other details. This version 
is accurate with precise timing but a little trickier. I played it in a show and thought I'd share! Enjoy.

Flat-picking tips:

1. Constantly keep your strumming hand in contact with the body of the guitar for accuracy.
2. In general, alternate between up and down strokes for each 16th note. It should feel natural.
      ie.    v  ^  v  ^  v  ^  v  ^  v  ^  v  ^  v  ^  v  ^
             1  e  &  a  2  e  &  a  3  e  &  a  4  e  &  a  
3. Keep your strumming hand relaxed with a loose wrist.
4. Practice a lot!
