  | UPDATE March 2007 release of the Wesley Anne Recording |
  | confirms Josh plays the song in Double-Drop-D tuning:  |

  | Open 1st-string rings but is possibly never fretted.   |

* 3rd-string could be left open then maybe the high-G is an
  overtone/harmonic caused by the tight fingering position.
  Suggestions welcomed from anyone who has seen Josh play.

RIGHT-CHANNEL GUITAR
Mostly the same voicings in the INTRO/VERSE with rhythmic variations.

Similar patterns continue in the CHORUS (but the chord-names change!)

   Cmaj9               D6sus4              G                   Cmaj9
   1   + 2   + 3   +   1   + 2   + 3   +   1   + 2   + 3   +   1   + 2   + 3   +
E|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|
B|-------12--------12|-------12----10----|-12--------12------|-8---------8-------|
G|-----0-------0-----|-----0-------------|-0-----------------|-0-----------------|
D|-10--------10------|-12--------12------|-12----------12--\-|-10----------10--/-|
A|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|
D|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|

Bar-8 lick:                 Cadence:
   Cmaj9*                      G      (4)          G
   1   + 2 e + 3   +           1   + 2 e + 3   +   1   + 2   + 3   +
E|-------------------|      E|-------------------|-------------------|
B|-8-----------8-----|      B|-8-----------8-----|-8-----------------|
G|-0---------0-------|      G|-0---------0-------|-0-----------------|
D|-10----9h10------/-|      D|-9-----9h10-----10-|-9-----------------|
A|-------------------|      A|-------------------|-------------------|
D|-------------------|      D|-------------------|-------------------|

  h = hammer-on
\ / = slide

The ring-finger slide on the Cmaj9-chord is really a position shift
since the index-finger plays the next note also at Fret-10.
