Notes:	-The fingerpicking style that Jewel uses in this song
	 is called "Travis picking"
	-Don't feel bad if you haven't heard of it!  
	-It takes a while to get the coordination if you're new
	 to it, but stay with it and it'll get much easier
	 pretty quickly (I learned it for the 1st time today too)
	-Jewel has several other songs in this picking, so make
	 sure that you get it down if you want to play the 
	 "real deal" for Violet Eyes, Thump, Thump, Get Ready Boy,
	 and a few more!
	-See link below for a 5-minute lesson on Travis picking...
