Explanation of the Tab Notation

Notes: w = whole   h = half   q = quarter
         e = 8th     s = 16th   t = 32nd  x = 64th
         
         Capital durations are dotted notes 
          (equal to 1.5 times the duration value)
       R = rest
         + = tied from previous note

    #
+----+                                       +----+
|*--*|  = MEASURE                            |4:--|  = TIME 
|*--*|    REPEATS                            |4:--|    SIGNATURES
+----+    (#=number of times to go           +----+
             back and repeat the measures)

Just so you know, the 5th fret on any string is the exact same note as the next string up played openly. That makes a 7 on E the same as a 2 on A. I even checked the 5th fret thing with my tuner. It registered as perfectly in tune as the next string. Just thought you should be weary of that before you start correcting people on something that you might be wrong about.

Good tab. Playing the A on the open A string is slightly higher in tone that playing it on the E string @ the fifth fret. Really, it's a matter of preference. In most songs, I personally go for the lower tone. Anyway, good tab. Fun song..
