Cover by Tommy Emmanuel

I tabbed this out as a way to learn the song myself. The tab is not exact to how Tommy
covers this song, but it gives the basic song and you can embellish it with your own 
and ad libs.
Listen to Tommy playing it and go from there.

Capo 4th fret.


Tab Notes:
Tuning: Standard
h = hammer on
P = pull off
/ = slide
C+9 = Cadd9 (yes, I got lazy writing it out)

Just a little heads on on chord charts. (I think this tab is old, so you may have learned since then)

+ means augmented.
