Tabbed byBreAnn S
TuningStandard
Capo1st Fret
Standard Tuning, Capo @ 1

4/4 Time, Quarter Note = ~63 (metronomeonline.com)

*Note: This song is pretty easy, but it's also very pretty.  You 
       can play it fingerpicked or with regular strumming.  For
       regular strumming, just follow the chords above the tab.
       For fingerpicking, follow the tab while "fingering" the 
       chords, and you'll see that the fingerpicking on this one
       is a piece of cake! (For a third option, you can also
       flatpick the fingerpicking tab with a regular pick!)
