Notes
-----
Play this song is in order.

Intro-A1-B1-C-D-B2-A2-Outro

Break this song up in parts and master them then piece it back together.

Part A1,B1 and A2,B2 are identical besides their endings.

Intro is in 3/4 Time Signature. The Rest of the song is mostly in 4/4.

----
Tips
----

This song is well worth learning. There are some challenging areas. 
I have tried to simplify as much as possible at areas I had problems 
with. I have checked out many tabs online and decided to write my own 
as i find myself revisiting this song time after time. It's a gem of 
a song!

You will encounter some Rapid chord progressions. If too difficult to 
play in time, Play F chord without barring the 1st fret-just make sure 
you don't sound the Top E, and A String.

Rapid Chords in these measures....

Bar[21] C-F-D7-G----pa-m-i pattern 
Bar[29] G-C-F-Bb----triplet
Bar[48] C-F-D7-G----double stops/intervals 
Bar[56] G-C-F-Bb----triplet
Bar[69] C-F-D7-G----double stops/intervals 
Bar[71] D-G-C-F-Bb--triplet. may be in 5/4


Bar[21],[48],[69]
(T) Left Hand Thumb. 3 fret on Top and bottom E string (G note). 
Thumb freting the top Bass E string gives an easier hand transition to 
the part B

Part B
Bar[23]-[28] and Bar[50]-[55] Tricky bass note. Try to keep the beat. 
Loosen your wrist and rock them. Thumb down for the bass and double 
stops (im) up on the treble. Keep it funky. Barre 5th fret at bottom 
3 strings through out. 

Part D
Bar[41]-[44] Favorite part. The bass note alternates 2 times and 
then 3 times.

Most accurate tab and closest to Handmade solo version I've seen. Except, if I'm not mistaken, (and correct me if I'm wrong please.) Mason plays part B1 bars 23-28, and part B2 bars 50-55 with the fifth fret fully barred. I know that how you have it using one string down is the same thing technically, but thats how Mason gets that excellent baseline slide at bars 26 and 53 using A string 5th to 7th fret. Listen to solo version and you will hear it... Awesome job Christian!!!!!
