This is similar to the version orginally posted at OLGA by Gehan Cheung with some minor
changes. I have fairly small hands and I needed to get rid of the 9-14 and (yikes!) 7-13
spans. I'm reasonably certain Dominic Miller plays it this way.

Not sure how it's played in Sting version but in the Bachman/ Cummings first time around, it's played with a capo (on third i think) and there's a little solo. Can someone please tab it?
