Notes: Take this beautiful song as is, or mix it up with the picking pattern, entirely up to you. I've left a
cue for the parts that are strummed in the original cover (see yt link) and also the echoed lines within the 
tab lines. I'll also upload a simplified version with just the chords, so you can check it out once you've 
mastered the picking. Have fun and happy playing!
