Song: I Was Only Nineteen
Band: Redgum
Tuning: Standard

So this is an awesome Aussie song, but there are no tabs on how to
fingerpick it so I thought I'd have a shot at it.

Yeah, so they're all the parts of the song and you can figure out how
to play it. It looks pretty hard coz of the way I tabbed it, but
they all have basically the same pattern and easy once you're used
to it. So yeah, have fun with this one :)

the time signature is 4/4 so what you need to do is play the first note (the bass note) for an eighth then have an eighth rest then the rest of the notes are played at a consecutive pace
