(ver. 1) Click to play this song!
Cat Stevens
Tuning:Standard
Note 1: + ->  harmonic
Note 2: Where Cat Stevens goes D Em D as tabbed, there is the alternative D Dsus4 D which is easier to time 
and sounds fine

Note 3: 
The song is played with 2 guitars. For example, the only thing Cat Stevens plays on the opening riff is 
the harmonic on the e string which is a bit tricky to make ring true and on time using one guitar alone.
In the same way, the end of the riffs are enriched by an arpeggio in D or Em on the second guitar during the
first section and in the second the second guitar plays D and Em arpeggios between the riffs which are doable 
on a single guitar but not quite the same
Basically, this is an approximation for one guitar so the sound is somewhat less rich than when they play it.
