*RETUNING YOUR GUITAR IS NECESSARY TO PLAY THIS SONG CORRECTLY*

Its not dificult to do. Just tune the A string down to be in
tune with the 3rd fret on the low E and tune the high e string
down to be in tune with the 3rd fret on the B string. When you
strum the 5 highest strings, you should hear a G-major chord.

Sounds best fingerpicked on an acoustic guitar. No pick necessary.

This is a really pretty song, and it's easy to play. So have
fun with it, and don't be affraid to improvise. Here's the tab.

look at the tuning before you judge, people...it's a good tab.

there is a bit missing from the chorus and a little from the bridge, but as far as the intro/verse goes, this tab is accurate.

i've seen them play this live, and fred uses an alternate tuning, so if anything, this tab is more accurate than most out there. it's also easier to play. good work meyer914.
