How To Play

To know to play this song:
-Finger picking throughout is important with a lot of emphasis on the bass note of each chord
-If you're singing this then you should also note how some of the verses start after beat one but
you start the chord on beat one.
-"hold" I mean to play the chord and let ring until you go to the next chord

 
A recommendation:
Bar chords for the softer more muted texture and fuller bass sound,
but it's up to your taste.
