Tuning: Standard

My first submission! Basically a series of arpeggios based on the chords, with a 
bit of discretion used as to which 5 notes in a 6-note chord are played. I think 
the song sounds a lot better this way than with strumming the chords or picking 
the individual notes. Substitute your own musical prowess if you feel there are 
better ways to pick the notes; my unschooled mind just went with what sounded good 
to my unschooled ear.

That said, I think this is best read in 6/8 time, with each each hyphen 
representing a 16th note. But I could be totally wrong on that.

CAPO 5 (or wherever your vocal range happens to fall; the first 2 notes you play 
on the G and B strings are the first two notes of the melody)
