A fairly simple tab, this one. In the verse, the melody is fingerpicked and the strummed chords are fitted around it.
There are a couple of tricky little bits. The first is ‘on a one…’. Here you have to use your index and middle fingers to play the same note three times in quick succession. The second is in bar 15. I think it’s all the John King around at the moment that made me tab it like this. Here are a couple of easier possibilities:
The chorus is just strummed chords. The basic chords are written above the tab. Most of the melody notes are contained within the chords but there are a few occasions where the chords have to be changed slightly to accommodate them.
When I was recording, I improvised the rhythm rather than playing it exactly as it’s tabbed. I suggest you do the same.
